    got me a 21" snapper hi-vac walk behind. had a hard time getting it to start yesterday but finally did and i ran it for just a minute maybe, then shut it off to put the grass bag on it and haven't been able to get it started again. i've cleaned the air filters, checked the oil and gas, made certain the gas switch is on. pulled the plug and cleaned it, etc. i've never had any trouble with it before and have used it steadily since starting my business in may this year.
    its a kawasaki engine if that will be of any help to figure out what else to try.
    the recoil starter works fine,too. whats a girl to do???!!!
    thanks ya all,

    Buy a NEW spark plug, set the gap correctly, and install it.
