Won't start, PLEASE help
I tried starting my project ski last night for the first time. It only took about 20 seconds to get the fuel system primed. After the first 20 seconds I started doing some little things to let the starter cool off a little. I then tried starting again and nothing. I pulled the plugs and i definately have spark, so I dropped a little fuel in the cylinders and it will run on the fuel in the cylinders, but its like the fuel is not getting through the carbs. The carbs were rebuilt, atomizers installed, acc pumps disabled and rejetted by Jims 1300. I dont know what else to do. Every time I pull the plugs they are bone dry. Thanks in advance.

Did you check spark on all three cylinders?
is the Ground strap from the stator cover conected to the head?
do you have a primer installed? some times these can be a biotch to start.
Have you checked for air leaks?
what are your high and low adjusters set too?
check your ground strap from the battery and make sure it is tight on the case.
What is your compression?
what position are the powervalves in if you have them?
Just a few items I can think of to look at for checking basic starting issues. I am sure there is more.

Did you prime your carbs......If you rebuilt them and did not prime them. The motor wont start...Try putting just a little fuel in each carb to get it to turn over and then the carbs will prime themselves.
I have seen this many times in my repair shop.
