Is it getting fuel? Remove the gas cap and have a helper turn the ignition on. Do not crank the engine. Put your ear next to the gas tank fill pipe and you should hear the fuel pump run for about 3 seconds. If not, get a hammer and hit the center of the bottom of the gas tank. Don't beat the tar out of it. Two or three good whacks will do. Then try and start it. If it starts you need a fuel pump. HTH. - Jim
