Usually if you have fuel and fire, you need compression and proper timing to finish the equation. This really sounds like your Timing is off. Here are a few things you can check:

  1. Check the cylinder compression and make sure it is within factory specifications.
  2. Try to start the engine with starting fluid in the Carb/Intake. If it starts, there is a fuel problem, if it doesn't start, the timing may be off or there may be too little compression in the cylinder.
  3. You may want to check the Emergency Cut-Off Switch for proper operation.

How to change stator on 1994 skidoo 580 grantouring snowmachine &what tools will I need

Why do you need to change the stator? If this was bad, you would not be getting any electrical power.
I'd change the HT leads/coil leads first & then maybe the coil. If you can get a loan of a coil & leads just to see if this solves your problem before buying new ones.

Has compression and fire but dont start

Remove sparkplugs and squirt some fuel in cylinders. Replace sparkplugs and start motor. If it fires up you have a fuel problem and a good carb cleaning should clear the problem.

Good Day Khairul,
Are the Carbs Synchronized To Open And Shut At The Same Time?
If This Is Correct ! Then Do You Need To Pump The Primer To Contine Running?
If Yes Then Replace Fuel Pump DiaPhram
It Coud Still Be An Electrical Fault,
Coil,Trigger Or Stator .
Check To See Condition Of Plugs After Running,
Hope This Helps

My outboard wont start ive fixed the the ignition coils starter motor and spark plugs it gets spark but no fuel there is fuel getting there but just wont start tryed sparying fuel straight in the carbs but...

if you have spark and fuel it should atleast fire when you spray fuel in the carbs. if your spraying it just into the air intake it may not be making it to the intake manifold. have you checked the fuel pump? you also need to check for the possibility of a air leak in the fuel system causing the motor to fail to run because it has a very lean fuel mixture. check all fuel lines, fuel tank, couplers and carb gaskets. if you havent take the air intake cover off and try spraying some wd 40 or other mildly flammable product and see if the motor will fire that way. its likely the fuel tank or fuel lines are the problem from my point of view. good luck.
