Model number is *****? Can't locate anything with 2133.?? What engine make and model is this. If you check spark with spark plug removed, d you have spar at the plug? If it has spark will it fire on starting fluid.

lt133 Kohler 13hp It sparks and I get combustion and some smoke from exhaust.

If you put fuel direct into the cylinder, will it fire for a few seconds? If it does, the carburetor is not letting fuel into the engine. There is an electric solenoid in the carburetor , is it opening as soon as the key is turned on? If it does not fire with spark and fuel, then I would check the timing key between the flywheel and the crankshaft.

Do you have compression? If you do, then I would check the timing key.
