Did you remove spark plugs and check for spark with plugs grounded to the metal of the engine? If it has spark, put a teaspoon of fuel into the spark plug holes, re-install the spark plugs and see if it will start for a few seconds.

I tried the direct gas, spraying starting fluid too.I put the new plug with a clip to ground it, and no spark from both plugs.
