My recommendation is to make him pay you to take it away.

LOL-ROF

Around Tupelo where I grew up, the old salts would say it is either fuel or fire(pronounced far).

If there are two of you, you can spray a bit of starting fluid into air cleaner hose and it may fire if fuel is the problem. Be careful as it may backfire if you get too much.Keep your face away.

The plugs may already be fouled after multiple attempts.

You can look through the oil fill hole and see the end rocker arm. Movement of that valve should tell you whether the cam is turning or not (i.e. broken cam).

From the ignition schematic, looks like pin 1 on the ignition coil is pulsed from the ECM. You should be able to see a flicker on an old style analog voltmeter - if you can find one. (Sean says Wal-Mart has them.)

Don't forget to give the guy a bill if you get it running

Thank you Mr. Jim! I'm very familiar with starting fire. It would take me four hours to get there where it's at maybe more. Like to carry some ammunition with me .thanks again
