Welcome to GTtalk. Have you checked to see if your getting gas to the cylinder?

Once you are sure ING. components are working properly, tty puting a lil gas down the hole, and starting it. If it starts, Id say it is carb related, if it doesnt, I would look for a sticky valve, or run a compression test on it. Cheers

If you know your getting gas, I suspect faulty condenser or breaker points

I have electric blue spark at the plug and gas. Is it a mag problem or a carb or what? Any help will greatly appreciated.
My rule of thumb on spark is that you need at least 5 times the plug gap outside the cylinder to be able to fire the plug against compression. If that passes, have you tried a new plug? I didn't see it mentioned.

One simple check is after pulling six or eight times, and it doesn't start, pull the plug and see if it's wet with fuel or dry. Dry, no fuel. Wet, no spark. Not the end all, but a starting point. Good luck, keep us posted.
