    last time it ran was the weather roughly the same as now? if different u might have to retune carb to compensate for weather? if its hotter now lean little by little. if its colder now richen a little. also get a new plug.

    hobby shops are unreliable its been my experience. they open late like at 10 30 and close on mondays. online it is for me for parts excepr nitro fuel that I do have to buy at the hobby shop.

    Did you perform an after run procedure when your stored it? If not chances are you will need to clean things up and hopefully the internals have not rusted....

    I'd first look at your fuel lines, check for splits at the connecting points, make sure you fuel tank has not a crack in it, verify your o-ring on the top of the fuel tank is sealing, check your exhaust coupler to ensure it does not have a split...

    After that, get some fresh fuel, a fresh glow plug, go back to factory settings and re-tune....

    I would recommend just getting a new piston/sleeve and bearings for your 3.3.
