Anthony,

I don’t know what a tao tao is, but it has a carburetor. Since you said it runs for a few seconds (good ignition) and has compression, the carb seems to be the culprit all right. I don’t know what carbs cost, but certainly a new one would be a quick way to find out of the old one was bad or not. If you are sure that gas is flowing to the carb, you’ve narrowed down the problem, although I’d work a little hard on getting the old carb apart. Have you tried penetrant and grabbing the screw heads with vice grips? If you do get it open, get some good screws for next time.
