Make sure your sediment bowl is full, if there's an air gap, it won't start. you need to losen glass bowl and let it fill nad then retighten

Jeff, I got some sediment (rust) in mine a couple of weeks ago. You should have a drain on the engine side of the carb on the bottom. Open that drain and flush it after you have put a couple gallons in your tank, also run your needle adjuster all the way in on your jet. Make sure you count the turns and bring it back out (do this a couple times). Give that a try and if it is a hand crank, have somebody give you a tow to fire her up. Good luck:)
