How ,'wet' should the spark plug be when testing fuel delivery?

Hi guys, I'm trying to get a Honda Hobbit running and I've cleaned the carb thoroughly. I'm getting a spark and it starts if I put premix down the cylinder then cuts out. It won't however start normally. When testing to see if the plug gets wet I'm not sure how wet it should be to determine correct fuel delivery. It has residue of fuel on there but hardly noticeable. When I poke a bit of wire down the cylinder it doesn't come out with any fuel on it either. Should I expect a lot of fuel on the plug when turning it over a few times? If that's the case I can definitely pin point it to a blocked carb. Also I'm definitely getting fuel to the carb as the float bowl overflows when cranking. Thank you in advance, Luke
