Hi Onion,

Not to mean you don't hear a "click". If you hear it... it's there. But those of us that know outboard engines, are visualizing something else/ Thanks for the clarification of "pull start". You will be bombarded with knowledge and swags from the most experienced to the least on a forum such as this. Without going to the shop... it's got to have: air, gas and spark. When you know you have those 3 and she won't run, then it's a carb most likely.
