I try to start up my Citation but no luck. I prime it twice, pul, pull, and pull, but nothing. I have excellent spark, new ignition wires, plugs, caps, and CDI. It started the day before but nothing weird had happened either. I took off the heads but everything looks great. So, whats going on? Any ideas to get it started would be great. Also when i try to start it, it doesn't want to even try, no sputter either...

Sounds to me like you got too much fuel in the engine before it fired. Air out the cylinders and put in some fresh plugs. Give it another try then.
