Remove the spark plug and with ti grounded to the metal of the engine, crank and watch for spark at the plug. If it has spark, put a teaspoon of fuel into the spark plug hole, re-install spark plug and see if engine will start for a few seconds. If it does, the fule is not getting through the carburetor.
