Stevo --

Check the fuel flow by removing the big screw on the bottom of the carb. Have a pan ready and open the shut off. You should get a thick, steady stream. If not, you have a blockage somewhere upstream of the carb.

As for the wire check: checking the sparkplug wires is always a good thing, but that's not what could be your problem here. I was referring to those skinny little wires that go onto the two nutted connections of your coil. Sometimes you can make a broken or frayed woven wire fail on demand by wiggling them around. The last time I had this happen, the last strand of wire failed when I wiggled, and the wire broke completely off. One of the best ways to test would be to put on temporary jumper wires and try it.

Good luck.

Also be sure to check the battery cables, all the way down to the starter. A known place where these crack, esp. at the battery tray & below, then arc over to metal & start fires. Bought some parts off a 3000 diesel that had that happen - torched itself in a barn while just sitting there with engine off.
