You offer much opportunity for research and discussion.
This would be a good topic for the Tank forum as there are professional plumbers with specific and general expertise on different model numbers.

Fixya is not a forum since we parcel an answer, then move to next question.
Discussion is not common, and typically one person answers this question, and then that question is removed off the question board.
If you are wishing to diagnose pilot light yourself, assuming product is not defective, and you are not already professional in the field, then following links offer resource:

Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Follow the cable to make sure it isn't stuck. If the cable moves freely, check that the flywheel brake and any attached springs are connected properly. These are usually under the pull start cover.

Pull cord won't engage

remove the sparkplug and try to turn the flywheel if it turns freely then the engine is most likely ok. if it does not turn you have a locked engine that means its toast. If it does turn then you have to look closely at th pull recoil that it is engaging the flywheel.

How to replace starter abendix on 1997 saturn l2

pull out the starter, put a new one in. the bendix is the lever contraption on top which moves the gear forward to engage the teeth on the ring gear or flywheel and which retracts it, like a turtle head, when the starter switch is released. i think the days of replacing the bendix only are gone, and the hassle involved in pulling a saturn starter on a 91-99 1.9L means you do it once.

My almost new Honda GCV 160 engine will not start.

Hi , I think you need someone to remind you these engins are not made by god and they work by obeying three simple rules ,
1.Spark , Can you see a very good blue spark
2.compression,,can you feel strong compression ,
3.fuel , is the right amount of fuel getting in , is the air mixture good ,

Now try these things

Find the manual and PROPPER set the gap in the spark plug ,
clean and check the air filter ,
remove all fuel and replace with brand new,
check the fuel filter,even in the tank tap?
undo the screw at the carb bowl , can you see petrol leaking ,

If everything checks out then try this to get it started,,

spray "easystart" in the carb , bypassing the air filter ,
if it wants to start but cant for long then its a carb problem
check float hight , float needle,jets and pins ,too much air getting in

find someone thats good on motorbikes , They like me know all the tricks to get things to start ,
