    Does the engine have a specific problem or are you just wanting to tear into it to find out what makes it tick? We also might be of more help with the model and spec number. BTW, it is not a good idea to post personal contact info on a public forum, attracts spammers.

    Squirt some gas, NOT STARTING FLUID, into the carb throat and see if it fires. If it does you have a fuel system problem. If still no go, look for a weak spark or low compression.

    If it came off a snow blower it won't have an air filter.
