Hello Don!

Is the starter actually turning the engine over? If so, pull the spark plug and check for spark. If no spark, you have ignition problems. If you have spark, drip a little gas into the plug hole, reinstall the plug, and see if it will start and run for a second. If so, then you have fuel related problems. Let us know what you find and we'll go from there.
