Hello, I hope I've helped. Thank you! Dane
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem. When you say that the engine turned over, I am going to take that to mean that the engine fired and tried to start. If this was the case, you definitely have a problem with fuel getting to your cylinder. Normally this means that your carburetor and/or fuel tank- filter -lines are dirty and they should be cleaned. However you stated that the carburetor jets and ports are clean. If you didn't flush the fuel lines and tank when you cleaned the carburetor, then it could have gotten recontaminated again from the tank.
The only other way you could have these symptoms is if the intake gaskets going from your carburetor to your engine are failing. To test this, place about 2 tablespoons of fuel directly into the mouth of the carburetor, turn the choke on and try to start the engine. If it starts for a second or two and dies, you will have to clean your complete fuel system again from the tank to the carburetor. If it doesn't try to start replace your intake gaskets.
I hope I've helped. Thank you! Dane
