Not turning over? What I mean is the flywheel was turning and the engine was making the sound it makes when it turns but will not crank or fire.
Not sure exactly what the problem was. Guess it could have been a weak battery and possibly the spark plug. Bought a new battery. Still did not crank like it should and backfired some when the engine did run. Then removed plug, cleaned the plug, and screwed the plug in tight and now it runs perfectly. Also, after buying battery, we disconnected, cleaned, and greased connections with dielectric grease but I think the spark plug was dirty and/or not torqued tightly enough which caused the inconsistent cranking/backfiring after installing a new battery. Hope someone may learn something from this experience. I sure did.
