    try checking exhaust posrt screen or better yet take off muffler to see if that works. You said it has spark so it cant be a bad ground either on the block or at the switch. but double check, Ive had that problem before too. when you try to start it after 3,4 pulls is the spark plug wet?

    the spark plug is wet after a few pulls... i think it is flooding it self out....

    take off muffler screen or entire muffler, that could fix it and dont choke it since it is getting fuel. Make sure spark plug gets spark and it should pop. but more than likely its the screen on the muffler.

    So, what was it, the spark arrestor? Or a bad plug?
