Remove the spark plug, and put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start. If it starts and dies, the carburetor is not passing fuel. Remove fuel line at the carburetor and see if fuel is flowing. If it is, problem is at the carburetor. Can you remove the carburetor bowl and check the float and needle valve?
