60 hp Johnson outboard won't start is a 1983

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I can try to get my engine started. I had it running last weekend, now it won't fire up. I had too much oil in the gas so I diluted it and put cleaner in it and ran it with the ears for 15 minutes before traveling back home with it and now it won't spark. I changed the spark plugs and sprayed started fluid into the carb , One of my sparkplug wires was loose so I shoved it back together but I have 3 sparkplugs and am not getting the ignition to start it. There is gas going to the sparkplugs because you can see they are wet after I have tried to start the engine. I am on a waiting list to send it to a mechanic and wanted to know if there is something I can try myself. Appreciate any advise that might help. It is a 1983 and I don't have a manuel. Thx. Jean
