The more info you can give the more we can in turn give back. Cost is the same but sure can save time for all of us.
6 or 12 volts??? What have or haven't you do to it and did this just start out of the clear blue or after you did something??
Check your spark at all 4 plug wires. It needs to be a blue/white in color and jump a 12 inch gap or more. Nexy pull the carb drain plug and make sure you have a good steady flow of gas for a few minutes. Catch the gas so as to lok for water or dirt etc. Thne post back what you find

"...and jump a 12 inch gap or more."

Some of us might know he meant a 1/4 inch gap. I"m correcting him for the new guys.

Years ago I worked on an insulation tester for the power company who owns Bagnell dam here at the lake of the Ozarks. That machine would do that 12 inch gap and then some shoot it would do a 3 foot arc. But yes should have read 1/4 inch gap
