Spay some starting fluid into the carb and turn it over. If it fires up for a couple of seconds, you have a fuel delivery issue. If it doesn't fire up at all with starting fluid, you have a spark issue. Pull a wire and see if you have any spark at all. If not, you may have a bad coil. Post back with results.
