    Is your glow plug bad?
    Is the new EZ start wiring grounded properly to the motor?
    What is the weather temperature?

    Those are the first things that pop into my head.

    If it's cold outside try warming the motor with a hair dryer first.

    Yup thats what comes in to my mine, the ground will not let it start or glow plug and if you have those what about your ex start battery??

    Since you bought a glow ignitor you can get rid of the blue and yellow wires. The red and black are for the starter motor.
    Remove the glow plug and test it in the ignitor to verify it glows brightly.
    Engines need four components to run: air, fuel (the right mixture), compression and glow. Confirm you have each and you'll be set.

    Ok dude, sounds like you got it running huh. Cool. Make sure the forward/ reverse servo is pushing the slide rod all the way into the transmission to engage forward, if it has the reverse setup? They do sometimes hang in neutral. Pulling all the way out (forward) is reverse. Now if you're still having issues, these are some things you'll want to check in the transmission if you have the black one.

    Worst case scenario is you buy a new tans for $48 bucks, mount it and go run.
