Check for spark. If you have spark but it won't run for a few seconds on the starting fluid do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero it's jumped timing. While you're doing the compression test inspect the spark plugs for being flooded with gasoline. It may be a carburetor problem where you're getting too much gasoline and flooding the engine.
