Sounds like your battery is flat. You need someone to recharge it for you, unless you possess a battery charger. If you do, you must follow the directions exactly. You would be safer to carefully disconnect the Honda battery first before recharging.

What do you mean by overloaded? Do you mead too high of RPM's? Floating the valves can result in the valves hitting a piston and bending one of them or worse.

It sounds as though the mixture is way too rich. Is the choke stuck on or malfunctioning? With is dry spark plug but fuel in the carburetor, try turning the fuel valve and choke off and then with ignition on and holding the throttle at least 1/2 open, kick the engine over several times. If it starts under these conditions then perhaps the float(s) in the float bowel have leaked and are full of gasoline causing the fuel to flow continuously into the throat of the carb then into the engine. It probably is some sort of carb mixture setting, choke or needle valve/float problem.

3. Fuel Tank empty.
4. Fuel valve was not turned to on or reserve.
5. Fuel tank contaminated ie. rust, water, dirt, etc.
