This is the gas engine? Twin cylinder? Do you have spark to the plugs when cranking? If you do, will it fire if you put a teaspoon of fuel directly into the spark plug holes, re-install the spark plugs and test? If it has spark, and will not start, the timing may be off. The twin-engine uses a timing belt and it can jump time or break. See link below.
