yeah, the bilge pump runs.
pre mix some gas and squirt a bit down the throats to see if it fires over.
If so, cool. Do a compression test on it. Get a new fuel filter from oreilly's for a couple of bucks to ensure you have fuel going to the carb. Don't pour straight gas down the carb.
Mine had broken suction tubes inside the gas tank that had to be replaced. I just looked at two others and they have the same problem.
There's tons of crap that could be the problem, but lets knock out the basics first.
What is your mechanical ability? Professional, weekender, or, need help with stuff around the house?
