@oneupondem , Mike, remove the spark plug and see if engine cranks over fast, if it does it is a compression release problem. Normally fixed by adjusting the valves to the correct setting. Use the link below to see how to adjust valves. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
