if you got spark you got spark .. the ignition components would seem to be ok.

squirt a bit of Starter Fluid into the carb (or spark plug hole and replace the plug) and attempt to start.

If it fires up for a moment you've got a fuel supply problem. most likely due to a dirty carb .. If fuel is actually getting into the the float bowl (check it by opening the float bowl's drain screw if it has one.. or remove the bowl and look), then the main jet is likely clogged ..

If it doesn't fire, you already know spark is ok.. so it's gotta have some serious lack-of-compression problem.
