OK,my suzuki fa50 has fresh gas, fresh oil, 90lbs of compression with i dont know if is good or bad......i have a purple spark on the spark plug....i recently cleaned out the carburetar.....so why wont it start? i put the choke on when i try and start it, sometime without... but i dont even get a "pop" oir anything.... what am i missing? why wont it start?

i recently had a situation with the piston getting stuck and it left a scrape in the cylinder, around halfway in......but i smoothed it out and i get 90lbs of compresion... i never measure it without the scratch... but i think 90 is enough....so if there is gas...and there is spark, and there is compression.. freedmust have been wrong when he said the motor has no choice in the motor not havinga choice to run....what can i do to get this thing started? ive tried with some gas in the sparkplug hole... but no luck.....it doesnt even "pop" or run for a sec. but i have a spark...why wont this thing work?
