How did you check for spark?

At first I would try a new spark plug since they are pretty inexpensive.

It is a new one, but i pulled the spark plug out, layed it on the side of the block and hooked the plug wire up and turned the engine over.

Put a teaspoon of fuel into the cylinder through the spark plug hole. Reinstall the plug & wire and try starting it. If it pops or fires a few times you've narrowed the problem down to fuel. First make sure it's nothing simple like fuel in the tank and the fuel shutoff valve is in the open position. Then I'd check that fuel is making it to the carburetor. Then finally there is the carburetor.

When was the last time it ran? Was it acting funny when it was running?
