How did you determine that it wasn't flooded? Did the old spark plug smell of gas? What type of choke does it have. I would squirt a couple drops of oil in the cylinder & pull the rope a few times. The re-install the new plug.

Does it have compression? Pull the valve cover and watch to see if the valves are moving properly and in time.

Check to see if the valves move in time with the piston. Could be a slipped timing belt.

the timing belt loose but that not the big problem the rings letting compression out looks like some carbon got in between piston and cylinder collapse 1st ring on piston
its a 2011 mower next question is it worth putting piston and rings and timing belt in it and any idea of cost of parts ???

Look it up on a diagram to get part #s... I don't know the prices off the top of my head. I don't get that far into these little engines very often since the labor rates usually compound too quickly and make the repair not economically attractive.
