I removed the mangled packing, replaced the cap, and it will not start. I know i should replace the packing, but it should fire up without it, right? tried all of the usual tricks, but every time i just keep kicking and nothing. I replaced the plug and it has spark. its getting fuel and the compression is unchanged. the most I have gotten while attempting to start it has been a mild backfire out the exhaust. and I'm confused. Any suggestions?
