Not a lot of helpful information has been given.
Water could have gotten into the air cleaner and on intake strokes pulled into carb, pull off air cleaner oil cup and continue troube shooting.

Need to isolate problem to fuel, mechinical failure or electricial. 1) try starting fluid to see if engine will start, if it does you could have dirt or water in fuel system and needs removed. 2)check compression if all cylinder check 75-90 lbs mechanical system should be ok but you might want to remove valve cover and make sure all push rod are in place and all valves are opening and closing. 3) you say the electrical system is firing, is the system battery ignition or magneto? Are all caps dry and without cracks?
Are you sure you have spark remember the firing order is 1-2-4-3. Are you the first person to work on it after it quit, maybe someone has removed the magneto and it may be out of time.

Today's Featured Article - Identifying Tractor Smells - by Curtis Von Fange. We are continuing our series on learning to talk the language of our tractor. Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
