'78 Puch wont start

<HTML>I have a 1978 Puch Magnum MkII. It has very low miles and is in great shape appearance-wise. I cannot get it to start. It had sat about 3 years before I got it.

I removed the carb and gas tank and cleaned them and reassembled. I have spark to the plug, but no gas seems to be getting into the cylinder head. Is there a reed? valve or something similar that lets the gas into the cylinder head?

It was my fathers, so I know it ran before it was parked 3+ years ago. It is a 50cc engine, 2 speed. Can anyone help with some suggestions? I am not too familiar with mopeds, I do work on old cars quite a bit so I think with the right guidence I can get it going?

Thanks to anyone who can/will help!!
