craftsman mower won't start.

I have a craftsman riding lawnmower with a 18 horse brings with overhead valve it had to much compression so I took the head off and sanded off I'll the carbon and put it back together now it turns over but would not start so I checked for spark nothing so I replaced the coil and sanded flywheel it's got fire and gas but still won't run so I bypassed the seat safety switch and it still does not run what is another possibly at
