Go to the auto parts and buy a spray can of Quick start and give it a spot of that ,then try to start it. If that doesn't do it pull a plug wire and stink a screw driver in the end and hold it about 1/4"from the motor and have someone turn the motor over while you check for spark.If no spark check to make sure you have juice to the distributor.then go from their . GOOD LUCK.
