frankfrank,
Before you tear into that thing, and because of what you have said, first try pulling both plugs and spinning the engine over with the starter while holding your finger over the spark plug hole. Do you have any compression? It could be that you have had a carb. leak spilling gas into the cylinders washing them down, or you have washed them down while trying to start it and have lost ring seal. If you have little or no compression, pour two or three ounces of motor oil in each cylinder and then turn the engine over by spinning the wheel while in high gear. After you have spun it a few turns, put the plugs back in and try to start it. This is of course assuming you have spark, fuel, and air.
