Remove the spark plug or plugs, and with plug grounded. see if you have spark when cranking. If no spark, check your kill wire circuit. If it has spark, put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if engine will start. If it starts and dies, no fuel is getting t the cylinder from the carburetor.
