First - Thanks for all the replies!!!

Still won"t start -- All the ignition parts have been changed and I do have a good blue spark. Carb was leaking a little - gave it a rap in case of sticky float. Starting to worry about compression, but this was running when I shut it down. Carb is one year old (from this site) and it seems like the adjustment screws tightened up. 1/2 turn out on both -- will start there but I got a bad feeling. Seem to recall that 1 - 1 1/2 out on both screws is good starting point.

Give it a shot of ether. If it fires on that, your carburetor is probably plugged up. Do a compression test then you will know if the valves are working.

Main jet the one that is at an angle should be around 1-1/2 turn out. The smaller one up close to the top around 1 turn
