Twin engine. Spark at both cylinders? If you remove spark plugs, and put fuel direct into the cylinders,re-install the spark plugs,will unit fire? Or with plugs out, run compression test, do you have around 100 psi?

It it fires with fuel in the cylinders, the carburetor/fuel pump would be suspect, letting no fuel to cylinders.
