    The engine pulls very easy and it does not start. There is nothing making noise. Also the crack shaft is okay. The engine size is a 3hp tecumseh reartine roto tiller.

    Thanks for the help if anyone has any ideas what the problem is please post a commet. Thanks alot

    First thing I would suggest is remove the spark plug and stick a screw driver in the hole then rotate the engine by hand and see if the piston is going up and down. When was the last time this engine ran ?
