first off pull the carb and clean it, and clean it, and clean it again. Then add an inline fuel filter. Then put in a new plug, turn your ignition on, flip the thumbswitch to run, crouch next to the bike and hold the plug against the cylinder head. Use your hand to kick the kick start, and watch the plug. Are you seeing spark? If not, check the wiring. I've got an older qt (yours sounds like a pre-1984, mine is an 80 - the 1984 and newer ones had 3 indicators on the ignition, the older ones only two) and I've had a lot of spark probs due to cracked wiring or just old parts. If you are getting spark but it wont start, its probably the carb (but it helps to clean it really well regardless, with how long its been sitting).
