Jay,Get it running again with the starting fluid.If you can keep it running by spritzing the starting fluid in the carb throat Then it is fuel related and the main jet has trash plugging it up.Try hand choking it over the carb throat if that don't clear it.It is plugged ,You might get it cleared out by removing the main jet needle and take a can of carb cleaner with the straw attached and sticl it way down the main jet needle hole and try blasting out the trash.Do not use compressed air to try to clear it out as that will damage the float. If that don't work the carb will have to be removed and cleaned .If the starting fluid doesn't keep it running then it is loss of spark.First try jumping the ignition switch,or try hot wiring it direct to the coil.

It appears to be not getting gas. Hand blocked the choke and no gas on my hand. Good flow to the carb though.
