Sounds like you need to check compression has to be above 90 lbs to start try squirting some starting fluid to start it and keep squirting it keeping it running you could have drop a valve doing this will reseat it but if thats case get new motor

Carb is most likely clogged from when the gas you had in it before gummed up. Take some carb cleaner and clean the heck out of the carb and everything will work just fine after that. I also recommend letting the carb cleaner sit for about 30 minutes before trying to start the machine

common problems to all older lawnmower, lots of dirt and dust the mower goes through and ages. I would first start by taking the carb apart and clean the filter with soap and water, allow it to air dry. also carburetor prob need rebuilding or replacing. Pick up some Carburetor cleaner at any auto part store and spay it down the carb, dont be afraid to spray allot in there and let it dry for 1/2 and hours. carb tend wear and parts need replacing just like any engines. 99% of the time lawn mower carb goes out before the engine will and common problems with all lawn mower. If you not mechanical incline or dont want to rebuilt it, just buy the whole new carb and replace it, fairly cheap easy to replace and will last you another 10 + years or more. www.briggsandstratton.com

Testimonial: "This guy really knows what he is talking about. I would highly recommend him."
If you have good spark and the carb is clean what kind of shape is the fuel in your mower?
You might want to empty the fuel system out completely and let it dry out to remove any water that may have accumulated in the tank.
Have you tried putting a splash of fuel into the carb and trying to start it?
If it starts on a splash of fuel you still might have a blocked main jet or stuck fuel float.
