There are many possibilities, you will need to diagnose the problem, or have it diagnosed. Do you have a fuel pressure gauge? Are the spark plugs firing?

Thanks, BretB.Don't have a fuel pressure gauge, but will get one. This at least gives us a place to start. Had already figured that we needed to check to see if the plugs were firing. Should have gotten all that old gas out before starting it up.
