Answers :

Did you drain out the fuel before you stock it? If you didn't, you may need to clean the carburetor or replace a new one because the fuel inside has become a kind of stick varnish. You may take a look at following link to see how to change or replace a carburetor. http://solosmallengine.blogspot.com
Buy a new plug, drain out all of the old gas and put in new gas, and take a look at the air cleaner. If the air cleaner is dirty replace it. There you now have a good spark, good fuel and good air. The engine should start. If it doesn't get some carberator cleaner spray and some starting fluid spray.
