I tried using quick start on it, but all that did was make it sputter a bit, so I am assuming that the fuel is not reaching the cylinders, anyone have any ideas?
1) Check for spark remove one of the plugs, connect the plug wire to it and ground spark plug base to a good ground , such as the cylinder head , position the plug so you can see the electrodes , crank the engine over , a fat blue spark should be evident. 2)If the spark is good , check for one or more of the following possible malfunctions 1) Obstructed fuel line or filter.2) leaking head gasket(s)3) low compression. If the spark is not good, check one or more of the following a) Weak ignition coil(s) b) Weak CDI unit. c)Loose electrical connections. d) Dirty electrical connections. e)Loose or broken ignition coil ground wire. f) Broken or shorted high tension lead to the spark plug. Difficulty in starting. Check for fouled spark plugs, Improperly adjusted choke, contaminated fuel system, improperly adjusted carburetor,weak ignition unit,weak ignition coil (s), poor compression
