I have a push mower (Weed Eater brand). I didn't need to use it last year, so it just sat.

Now I am trying to get it started, and am having problems. The lawnmower will crank for 3-4 seconds and then dies. I appears to be using the gas that I pumped into with the little bulb pump, but then runs out of fuel, perhaps.

I've changed the spark plug, tried it without pumping it, pumping it a lot, changed the oil, dumped out the gas and replaced the gas - always the same behavior.

Any help in troubleshooting why the engine only stays cranked for a few seconds would be greatly appreciated.
