Do you have spark if you remove spark plug and ground it?
If you have spark, do you have compression? Check by putting finger over the spark plug hole and see if it has enough compression to move your finger.
If you have spark and compression, put a teaspoon of fuel into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it starts.
If it starts and dies, the fuel is not getting to cylinder. Is there solenoid in the base of the carburetor?
Solenoid would have to have 12 volts to open.
