I went to start my 110 today and the engine was turning over but no ignition. thought maybe I flooded it so I pulled the spark plug out. no gas on it. I then took the air intake off the carb and there was gas dripping out the front of the carb! :wallbanging:  what happened. I need help. :help:

Your plug may show spark out of the head, but does it fire under pressure?  Replace the plug, clean the carb like 637YOMEN said and you will probably be in business.

Does it spark nice and blue or is it a yellowish orange.

if it is yellow it probably wont spark under pressure.

It is much harder to have spark under pressure than not.

Good luck, Luke

Mine was doing that and it had blue/white spark. I replaced the plug and it fired right up.

Thanks for the help. I replaced the plug and it started (after a few tries. Now I need to charge the "new" battery from trying to start it so much :hitting_self_roller: )

A plug that has been fuel fouled will often fire outside the engine but not under pressure.  A fuel fouled plug won't necessarily appear wet.

 

The fuel dripping out of the carb is an indication you have a carburetor problem which can cause the fuel fouled plug.  You should have a look inside the carburetor.  I think you'll find it's dirty or needs a new float needle/valve/float.
