    hmm from the sounds of it it could be flooded if crap is comming out of the exhaust BUT you wouldnt be able to pull the pullstart. did you messaround alot with the needles? is the glow plug in tight?



    I JUST THOUGHT OF SOMETHING ELESE

    Is fuel getting to the engine, is there enuf pressure for the fuel to get there. Did you prime it?

    Are you able to spin the motor with the pullstart if you remove the glow plug and disconnect the fuel line? If you can then maybe what is happening is that the motor is getting too much fuel and cause a hydro lock. This happens when you get too much fuel inside the motor. When the piston goes down it forces too much fuel up into the cylinder so that when the piston tries to go up it can't because the fuel doesn't compress.
