Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
Can you remove the spark plug? With plug removed, was plug wet or dry? If wet, it may be flooded. If dry, no fuel to the cylinder. Ground the plug to the metal of the engine and see if you have spark when cranking at the plug tip.
Yes, that was what i figured.
OK, if it has spark, put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the cylinder, re-install the spark plug, and see if ti will start for a few seconds. If it does, carburetor is not delivering fuel.
OK. I will be here.
So it has to be fuel supply problem. Have you removed the carburetor and checked it for any gummy deposits? And checked the fuel supply passage the needle valve has to open and shut? If you have an all metal needle valve, there will be a rubber seat in the upper passage. This seat can swell and restrict flow into the float bowl.
