This is indicative of a lack of ignition spark or weak spark. An in line spark testing tool is about $7.
Does the engine attempt to "catch" at all during a start? Backfire or cough?

Is this motor belt driven overhead cam, btw? More details on this specific engine please. I believe they used a SOHC or DOHC engine depending on year.
