    I drove to work this morning, no problems at all. Came to start her at 7 pm and she wouldn't start. There must be some compression, as evry now and then she fires, but not enough to get her going. Everything seems to be connected lead-wise. I kept trying until I'd flooded her. Any ideas, please?

    new plugs ! air fuel spark thats how it works.I could tell you alot about engines from a 2 stroke to a v8. check the plugs.gas engines will run with 0 comperssion ie petrol diesel needs compression to start
