Hey guys,
I've got a Schumacher Rascal X18 and i previously had it running fine, then after 2 uses it lost nearly all it's power when running.
I've took the engine apart cleaned it out and put it all back together including a new gear!
When i try to start it now it won't run at all, but i can hear the popping coming from the engine, which means it should have compression...
I've tried alsorts of idea's but it won't work at all.
If anyone has ANY idea's or knows what the problem could be before i sell either the whole thing or buy a new engine lol, i would be grateful!

Check your glow plug isn't blown, or that your glow starter is not in need of charging.  That would be my first port of call.
