If your plug is dry, then there is no fuel. This can happen for two reasons: No compression - be sure to get a compression tester and ensure that there is enough compression produced by the engine to enable the engine to run. More than likely, though, there is no fuel getting to the engine. When cleaning carburetors, it is important that you use a chemical dip. Spraying carb cleaner through it is not enough. Be sure to disassemble completely: fuel float and its needle and seat, all jets, all emulsion tubes, all air cut off systems and accelerator pumps, all enrichment circuits (choke), vaccum slide and diaphragm, all air jets, and last but not least - the idle air/fuel screw. If this is the first time the carb has been taken apart you have to drill the cap to get to the screw. once everything is apart, soak all metal parts in the Berryman or equivalent chemical dip solution for at least several hours. After, run hot water, as hot as you can stand over all dipped components and blow out with compressed air. reassemble and enjoy.

did you try the fuel petcock on the bottom of the tank? If not, pull it out and check the fuel filter on the top of it. If it won't start because of no fuel, that maybe the problem or it could just be a vaccum leak. Check the tubes for leaks or just replace them, they are cheap. If it isn't starting because it floods out from to much fuel, then it might just need a new petcock. How did the diaphrams on the top end of the carb look?
