Remove the spark plug and put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the cylinder, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start!

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 11 months ago.

did you check for spark at the plug with it grounded? Do you have compression? Hold finger with rag over the spark plug hole to see if it has enough compression to move your finger? With spark , fuel and compression, it should start, one is missing!
