B&S 5.5 testing for spark
I have acquired a Craftsman B&S 5.5 silver series 158CC SN 0908195445371 mower. I think it has been sitting out in the rain for a while. I would never do this myself. It won't start or even spark. I have run carb cleaner, fresh gas, starter fluid through the engine and nothing happens. I don't have a spark testing tool. Ideas on how best to check for spark before I go through the carb. Thanks much for any ideas. Seems like I'm getting a lot of water through the muffler when I try to start the engine.
