Thanks eveyone for the Advice, but what seems to be Happening is the plugs are getting fluded and I take them out clean them off and still nothing. I have the choke up, I am not holding the Throttle down. I am spraying starter Fluid into the air Intake. HELP I am about to blow the thing up!
Stinger what type of Jets did you Install?
Somebody suggested adding a primer what does everyone think?

Ok first of. *Flooded has to do with to much fuel and oil in the combstion chamber. *
Whats happening to your plugs is called Fouling. *
First thing you want to do is make sure you have a spark. *To do this pull the plugs from the engine and hold them up against the block. *Use pliers with rubber handles to hold the plugs down dont hold them with your hands. *Then turn on all the keys and kill switches and have a friend pull the cord. *If you see a nice spark then its not an ignition problem. *
What i would do is go up to your machine and pull the plugs. *With no sparkplugs in the holes turn the key to the off position and pull the engine over 6 times fast (Like your trying to start it.) *
Then put in New plugs and screw them in. *Dont use any choke just pull hard and have someone or if you can do it apply 1/4 throttle. *If it starts then thats probably the end of your problem. *If it doesnt then you might have a failed piston or a bad carb. *
Dont use any more starting fluid. *
Like i said i think your problem is failed plugs. *It happened to me a few times. *The machine just wouldnt start. *Plugs spark but not when there in the engine under compression. *
