Hi Jean,

It sounds like it is still a fuel delivery issue.

Is fuel pumping into the primer bulb when you push it? If not, the small fuel filter pick up (assuming there is one) inside the tank could be gummed up and not pulling the fresh fuel through.

If fuel is showing inside the primer bulb and it's still not starting, it sounds like there is still a blockage somewhere in the carburetor.

Don't worry about some ones opinion jean! We have been there ourselves! Any luck getting it to pop like the others said?
