Moped no longer starting

I had my Magnum running, although rough as it had a few air leaks at both ends of the intake. I put some O-rings over top where the intake goes into the carb and that fixed that leak (it was running smoother). I then changed the intake gasket (for a second time, as that gasket was fairly new) and now moped will not start at all. Today I put in a new spark plug just to be sure, and I've re-seated the intake gasket a few times as well. I pulled out the main jet, blew some carb cleaner into the needle jet as well as cleaned the float bowl. Float pin is new and float seems to be working fine.

I don't have a compression tester but when I pull the plug, put my hand there and give the pedals a crank, I am feeling pressure.

Points have been cleaned but I haven't set the timing.

What should I be looking at next? It's driving me a bit crazy that I finally got it running and am now back to square one..

Thanks
