I would remove the muffler and have a look at the exhaust ports, and take a look at the piston and cylinder and see what it looks like. There is a spark arrestor screen that you might want to check and see if its clear as well.

It's Not That Old... Acts Like No Compression. What Should Compression Be, And, Would That Cause A No-start??

I would look for 90 + lbs of compression, if any lower then this is probably your problem. You can try putting a little 2 cycle oil in the cylinder and then try starting, if it fires off and runs till the oil is burned out, then compression is an issue. Could be that the pistion ring is stuck.
