First remove the glow plug and check it . ( using glow igniter )
Is there fuel in the fuel line. (did you prime it enough )
Is it flooded ( primed too much ), glow plug soaked with fuel ?
I found that when starting the s 25 I have to keep the throttle a 1/4
way open . Hope this helps.

Sideways and on the gas .

i find my igniter dead alot, check to see if its good on a spair plug if you have one. or, ya, check the plug itself, and check that there is fuel in the engine. i recommend getting a pullstart because you can feel what your engine is doing (eg, no fuel, fuel but no ignition, too much fuel...), but its all a matter of opinion.
good luck with that

make sure the fuel is getting into the carb, check the needel valve an make sure there is no dirt, or that the needle is broken.

Make sure you have no air leeks in your lines, or fuel tank.

if your using a fuel filter make sure it is not pluged.

Make sure your fuel is fresh and not a year old.

try another glowplug, or igniter.

is there lots of compression?
