Look in the carb if u see any dirt, the engine might start but will flame quickly, u need to take the engine apart if u suspect any dirt went in, clean everything with some nitro cleaner prolly replace bearings, the dirt will wear down the psr and crank, put in a new plug, u will lose a lot of pinch if u r lucky it might still run but most likely its finished if it got dirt in it

If you see any dirt in carburetor throat, Scuffing or scratches on crankshaft,case, Piston,sleeve. Bearings may also be worn or feel gritty or not smooth. Also check for a grey dust/ past inside. The dirt is like sandpaper on the aluminum and steel parts.

We rebuild/ repair a lot of engines if you have any questions feel free to give a call or email.
