My GCV 160 honda engine on my log splitter

I changed the oil on my log splitter engine. Went to start it after I was done and it won't start. I pulled the spark plug and I do have spark. Removed the carburetor and removed the bowl to ensure there was no water in the bottom of it and put it back on. Cleaned the ignition coil and made sure it had the proper clearance and both were okay. Put everything back together and it still won't start. Sprayed gas engine start in the carburetor and it still won't start. It is only a year old and I need it for this season wood splitting. me please I'm stumped.

If it was running fine, then you shut it off and changed the oil and now a no start a possibility would be an oil sensor.

This model does not have an oil sensor.

If you add a little gas to the spark plug hole and put the plug back in, will it fire up for a second?
