    <font color="green"> The problem is that the engine isn't running. Has to be one of two things, fuel or fire. Fire is easy to rule out, so do that then go after the fuel part of the equation.</font color>

    if it sputtered and died try fuel if it just died something with fire or electrical. try the fire first. ground a plug and see if your getting fire. if its not and its hei check your rotor cap and i bet the spark blew through it and is going out the dist. shaft

    hope it helps
