always check spark first, as indicated.

if it has good spark.. move on to fuel.

cheoke help that spitting and sputtering?

Start with the basics.
Verify that you have a bright bluish white spark at the plugs that will jump a good 3/8".
Short or yellowish spark will not do.
Next check your fuel.
Remove the plug on the bottom of the carb and let gas wizz into a can for at least 1 full minute. It should not slow down or stop in that time.

I have never worked on the gas version but are the plugs in the same basic holes the injectors would be in on the 3 and 4 cylinder diesels?

Yes, same location and same depth of holes where the spark plug washer or copper washer on an injector seats against the head.
They are different heads - gasser does not have the locations for injector studs cast in.
Valves, rocker arms and push rods are the same part #s between the two.
