Can you spray or pour fuel into the carburetor and it start briefly
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Already did that

Okay. Does it start briefly or no?
If it starts briefly then you still have a clogged fuel jet somewhere (check center jet in carb) if it does not, there may be issue with throttle connection or auto choke if it is auto choke.
