I would say the carb is gummed up. Remove the spark plug, pour a couple of oz. of gas down the plug hole, install the spark plug. If it runs for a couple of seconds, your problem is a gummed up carb. So the carb has to be removed, taken a part, soaked in a carb cleaning solution for a couple hours, rinsed off, blown out with compressed air, a new kit installed.
