From the sounds of this the on/off switch is staying in the off position,, what that does it takes away spark.
Remove wires from on/off switch and see if it starts and you have spark.
Click here for switch location and disassembly of handle.
There is usually a ground strap tied into stop switch to ground out coil to stop spark and shut down engine ,,try connecting the stop switch wires together, it may work opposite on this one. Some are wired N/O and some N/C
