OHV 175 Techumseh - Starting Issue

I have a Murray Lawn Tractor with a 17.5 Techumseh ohv 175 20480713 that will not start. Replaced the solenoid, battery, and spark plug. Fire is reaching the plug. The engine will turn over but will not start. 15 amp fuse between the solenoid/starter switch is good. Any other suggestions of what to check next?

Have you checked the carb? Try putting a little gas in the spark plug hole and then see if it will start. If so, you have fuel problems.
