Remove the spark plug and put finger with rag over the spark plug hole and crank, to see if it has enough compression to move your finger. If no compression, it has a stuck valve. If it has compression , check the spark plug by grounding it to the metal of the engine while cranking. If it has spark, put a teaspoon of fuel into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start. If it starts and dies, it is carburetor probelm.
