Generator starts then dies.

My McCulloch FG5700 AK generator starts,runs for about 2 seconds then dies. Yes the in-line fuel switch and the on-off switch are on. The gas has Stabil and Heet in it. There is approximately 50 hours of use on it. It is stored in the garage.

I don't think I ever saw a McCulloch generator, so I don't know what type of engine of carb they have.
