Default marder won't start

hi i ran my marder yesterday to try out the wireless camera. it started beautiful yesterday and all the other times i started it. today it will not start not even a pop. i have gas, i have spark. when i take the plug out and pull the recoil you can see the gas comming out of the spark plug hole. i have not touched the needle adjustments. thanks shymot

might just be flooded. try some starter fluid. also the carb needles could be dirty. i'd spray some carb and choke cleaner in it. also i've had my hi and low jets turn themselfs from vibration.

If you had it running before and you checked the pug ,you can still have a bad plug. I had the same problem but discovered a bad plug. It would start the day before and the next day start hard.
