Disassemble and clean the carburetor. Check careful for damaged gaskets and clogged jets. Also see if the engine cranks over cleanly. If in doubt, take it apart and give everything a thorough inspection and cleanout. Missing gakets you can easily make yourself with heavy paper and a 2 stroke engine is rather straightforward to strip and rebuild.

New Plug and possible wiring could become an issue as well. check to make sure that you have spark. Take the plug out and crank it over while holding the plug against the cylinder head. It should give you a spark. Make sure of course that you do not hold it with your bare hands, could be shocking experience. Just got the parts list as well as the complete service manual so do feel free to download it. I do hope you get it fixed and let us know about it. Good Luck
