Are you sure fuel is getting through the carb?

Try a 1/2 teaspoon down the carb with the choke off and throttle wide open. Keep your face away from the carb in case it backfires.

Spark plugs nice and clean? Have bad carbon build up in the cylinder? Or the intake port. Intake may be clogged. If It don't run. Take the carb and intake off and check that stuff. Clean the spark plugs. Someone could have messed with it and the timing is off or the gov has been messed with. A lot of reasons. Just throwing some out there

spark plug could be shot, or a common problem is the timing is off, is air pushing out of the carb?
