do you hear/feel the motor rotating while tring to start?
(remove sparkplug if not sure to see movement inside)
btw model is MAXI or equal. (other wise you had kick start )
try this sequence. open tap, tinckle the knob on the carb-bowl to make sure
no airlock is in the gas line.
peddle or run untill motor picks up (gets in movement) [if needed use
de-compressor to get it rotating]
if all is working right it will start.
If not check sparkplug condition and report please

clutch in and give it gas.
5. Nothing happens.
Any advice on how I might get this thing running would be greatly
appreciated. The guy I purchased from assured me it "starts right up"
and he ran it last week. I have added fuel, with a 50:1 mixture of two
