you probably will have to rejet, once you get it running. that wont keep it from starting unless the plug is coming out wet.

you know the requirements for it to run, fuel, air, and ignition. see which one yours is missing. (if you pour a little squirt of fresh premix down the carb throat or in the spark plug hole and it starts or tries to you know which one it isnt getting) . my guess is that you have a dirty carburetor, and or stale fuel.

Pilot jet may be clogged from dried gas/oil gunk. A good carb cleaning, clean air filter, fresh plug & pre-mix, oughta fire right up.
