When you say it doesn't appear to be firing, have you actually pulled the spark plug out and held it against the block while cranking the motor over to visually check for spark?

New Battery,New Gas, New Oil, Filter, Spark Plug, New Fuel Solenoid, Carb Tuneup Kit, all seem to be fine. Fuel line runs from fuel tank directly to card. New Gas line.
Don't know that there is anything else to replace. If i pour gas directly in carb cranks and runs to gas is gone.
