Does your fuel even burn? Put a dab on a piece of cloth and see if you can light it with a match. If it resists, you've found your problem. HTH

Good fuel???
If you have a strong repeating spark and good fuel vapor there is no way for it not to ignite.
You might be spitting liquid fuel or not getting a real spark in the right place. Grainger's has rebuild kits for virtually any torpedo ever made. The kits provide spark plug, pressure creating disk, photo eye, etc for about $60. Money well spent or buy a new one. ___________________________ Keep the whole world singing. . . . DanG
