yes theres gas in it, fresh gas, the rest evaporated(bad gas cap lol), im thinking spark plug might be worn out, its odd though cuz he had it running and drove it to the back.
hope i didnt flood it. not used to those dang carbs.

prob has somethnig to do with either the spark plugs or the carb. Since I"m guessing it hasn't been run in a while that could be it.

Spark plug
Carb. Pull the bowl off make sure the float valve is not sticking and check to see if there is any gas in the float. If there is any gas in the float it wont float. I have seen this many times.

I would have said, Do a full carb cleaning and clean out the jets. check air filter, then oil.. after oil is checked make sure the choke works. And do a halfway choke on her, and check spark plug. most likey its clogged in the bowl. (:
