Hello. Spray a little starter fluid into the spark plug hole and replace the spark plug. Then turn it over. If it turns over but doesn't run have an assistant squirt a little starter fluid into the air intake while you turn it over and keep it running on starter fluid for a couple minutes until it takes off.

First do a compression check - if good compression - reset the points and check for spark - it takes a STRONG spark to start older units.
Just for fun - check for recalls your were never notified of.

My 1972 Vw bug won't start anymore. It acts like


The basic process is to check for spark at the coil and the plugs, then check for gas in the carb. If you have spark, it should try to start with carb cleaner sprayed into the carb throat.
If it does, you then check for fuel pump pressure in the line between the pump and the carb.

Sounds like the carb has over flowed and filled the crankcase with gas.
You will need to drain the oil, and re-fill it with new oil at the proper amount. Also replace the oil filter.
Clean the air filter and replace the spark plug.
Clean the carb, making sure the float and float needle are functioning properly.
That should fix you up!
