Question about Garden
If your mower will start when you prime it, and then it dies right away, you have a carberator pluged. If after primeing the mower and it will not even start for a few seconds, you have lost spark. If you have no spark, this can be cause by two things. First, the magnito could have gone back, but this dosen't happen to often, but it can happen. First, check to see that the cable from the brake handle has not stretched. This controls engine brake and its also the kill switch, which kills the spark. Get acess to your engine brake, and you will find a wire connected to a tab. Remove this wire and try to start the mower. If it starts, replace the control cable. If it dosen't start, hook the wire back up and replace the magnito. I hope this is of some help

After you check airflow (i.e. cleaning up the air filter), check fuel flow.
I'm assuming the gas is clean and fresh.
Is the gas flowing from the tank?
Is the gas getting into the carb?
If yes, then the next step is to remove the carb.
Check the diaphram between the carb and the tank, this acts as your fuel pump. Is this diaphram in good condition? If not replace it.
While the carb is removed, clean all the little ports (jets) into the carb with WD-40 or carb spray-on carb/choke cleaner (automotive section of your local auto store). Blow it dry with compressed air (canned or from a air compressor). Replace any gasket so the carb doesn't have seepage when reinstalled.
It may sound a bit daunting, but its an easy job and may stores carry the necessary parts. Try WalMart, or auto stores, if they don't then a good hardware store should. Or, a lawn mower shop should have it.
Good luck, I'm rebuilding doing the same thing to one of my mowers this week. Piece of cake.
