Engine oil level correct? If you remove spark plug and ground to to the metal of the engine, do you have spark? If you have spark, put a teaspoon of fuel into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if engine will run for a few seconds. If it does, no fuel is getting through the carburetor. Try draining the fuel bowl on the carburetor, it may have water in it from being out in the weather,
