You need to see if you are getting fuel, easiest way is to open the fuel bowl drain and crank the engine, it should come out of the drain at a good steady stream!!! Next you want to make sure the oil is full in the HPOP, there is a plug to remove at the top, the oil should be about a 1/2" from the bottom of the threads.
