Hi lindab5969, I would check your timing and replace your cap and rotor, spark plugs and plug wires. If you still have problems starting you may want to rebuild your carburetor. This is in reference to TSB 85-008. Good luck!

Have your timing belt/timing chain checked.This is a very real possibility in causing your engine to not start.Repeated cranking of the engine if it is the timing belt will bend push rods.valves.etc Doug
