pull your plugs and pour a little(a couple dribbles) gas into the cylinders put the plugs back in and try it . if it fires up but wont stay running try spraying gas into the carb if it fires up but still wont stay running you most likely have a fuel delivery problem. either plugged up carb or fuel line or defective pump or pulse line

Check compression. prob isnt much there. If u have gas and spark it has to run unless there is a bad ring or seals.

Won't go

UNLESS. Check the filter and as much as I hate to say it, you might try taking the gas line apart b4 the filter and sucking gas out of the tank. Then reconnect to the filter.
