Craftsman Blower Won't Start

I Have A Craftsman Gas Leaf Blower, It Is 185 Mph And 25cc.
Model# 358797120
Serial# 03296n200078 (06:12) 25cc 2003

It Pulls Normally But Won't Start, I Tried New Gas, A New Spark Plug. I Tried Instant Start And Not Even A Quick Rev.
I Pulled The Plug And Hooked A Alligator Clip To It, I Saw Sparks.

All I Can Figure Is It Is Grounding Out Somewhere Not Letting It Run. Help.................................................................................

Hi Bigjoe,take the muffler off and check the ports and the muffler,they may be cloged up with corbon.Then look into the cylinder with a maglight or some other light,your checking it for scratches and scares.if (If cylinder is scared up sh*t can the whole thing and buy another.It will cost more to repair that one) then if not scared up take the spark plug out and check the compresson.

Post back with results.
