Morini Won't Pop

My morini motor won't pop. I bought it from a guy who said the magneto wasn't working. when I took off the engine one of the wires was cut. so I fixed that and put it back in.

I can get the magneto going but there seems to be some problem in the transfer of power from pedals to gas. when I pull the clutch the magneto spins and everything, but pulling back the throttle doesn't make it accelerate, it just slows down and dies. here's what I've done so far:

cleaned the carb

checked points

checked cylinder and piston

changed spark plug

checked compression (not gauged it)

and I think that's it. now here's what I've found out. If I put gas into the spark plug whole, then put the plug back in, it'll pop a few times. I think there's a problem in getting my gas from my carb to my piston.

any suggestions?
