mechanical pumps do not have a relay

sounds like timing belt or chain has broke or maybe a timing gear. I would not advise trying to start it if this is the problem because you run the risk of bending the valves. TRY this to determine if it is the timing. Take cap off off valve pan cover " where you put the oil in " and using a flash light look down into the hole and have someone try to start it. IN most cases if the timing is out wou will see no movement of the rocker arms....hope this helps and good luck....

It may not suit your engine expecially if the engine is a different capacity and in this case the carby jets need to be change or tuned to give the right combustion fuel mixture..
