Engine turns over fast you can smell fuel but won't start.
Checked everything found no spark while engine turning over.
Any suggestions please

No spark on any of the spark plugs?

I would first check if there is power going to the ignition system. Is the kill switch in the proper position? Is the power going to the coils (black/white wire)?
