Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Have you tried starting fluid or put fuel direct into the cylinders to see if it will start for a few seconds? What is the compression? Needs to be over 80 psi. If it will not fire with starting fluid or fuel direct into the cylinders, and it has good compression, check the valve operation, and if valves are ok, then the timing key between the flywheel and the crankshaft needs to be checked.
