I like to blast a little starter fluid in the carb. answers a lot of questions quickly.
if it runs for a bit on that, you"ve proved it"s sparking and in time.
If not, pull the plugs (but leave them hooked up and grounded), put your finger on a plug hole, and slowly turn the engine till you feel you"re on the compression stroke.
then watch the timing mark on the flywheel - make sure it"s sparking at the right spot.
do it for both cylinders - once you do that you"re sure your timing is close enough to start, your wires aren"t reversed, your points are working, your wires are solid, and your plugs are in fact sparking.
if the engine does fire on the starting fluid - your problem is most likely in your carb.
