Most of the time the problem is right there at the plugin. Check for power upstream from the plugin to insure power is reaching back there.

Thank you, WE have found we have water in the tank, so we unhooked the pump and just added fuel to the carb, it did try to start. Which is good. NOW its just the power TO the pump we need to figure out
