Can't get this Victa to start. Cleaned the fuel tank, carb, diaphram. Changed spark plug. Got 4 blades on it, 'zip' start, metal carb. Getting spark. Suspect timing problem. Can you tell me what to do next? Engine no. is 1274018856. Plastic air filter on handle. Have spryed starting fluid in carb; get a bit, no start.

Check the bottom seal on the crankshaft first for moisture.

Beneath the muffler, where the piston meets the main body, on the bottom, at the seal, there is stain from something. Hope this answers your question.

You will need to tighten up the cylinder bolts as some times they come loose. But what I was asking was that you check the seal which is on the crankshaft, you need to take off the blade plate to doe this.
