I have an echo blower that was given to me and it will not start, I have rebuilt the carb. new plug, and fresh's drawing gas from the tank into the carb, but I don't think it's getting gas into the cyclinder. Does anyone have any suguestions?
Hope to hear back.

Have you verified no gas going to the cylinder? Take off the plug, close the choke and pull a few time, if you have gas, you should smell it from the spark plug hole. If not, you don't have gas.

If you have gas, check the spark.

If your not sure as to gas within the Combustion Chamber add a few drops of fuel or starting fluid into the spark plug hole then replace plug and try restarting , it should fire or run for a few seconds. If not you not getting any spark ! Ty .
