Carb is most likely gummed up and will need cleaning. Anytime a gas motor is store through a season, you should use a product called "stabil" in the gas to prevent gumming up. Also check that there is a strong spark coming from coil. To do this, remove spark plug, hook it up to the coil and set it on motor block and pull it over. You should see a strong spark. If you don't see the spark, then either the coil is faulty or the magnet from coil to flywheel is not getting good contact.

Obvious solutions won't start Lawn Mower!!!


Sounds like it's a fuel issue.
After the Carb rebuild, you put gas in the tank and started it up immediately. and ran it only 30 seconds.

If you look at the gas tank now, is it empty? Is there gas flowing out by the air filter? You sounds mechanically smart, just wondering if you messed up something with the carb rebuild and gas is flooding up into the carb. Check the Oil again, is it overfull from gas getting into the oil?

Lawn mower won't start


Take Breather element off,and try to start it Then or if it starts that way cut it off and replace the breather and if it doesn't start You May need to change spark plug also, As if You have flooded it, Gasoline will kill a spark plug

Make sure spark plug wire is connected and that plug is not blackened and fouled out. Also check your fuel filter (plugged?), the handbar safety lever & it pull cable and make sure it is opening the breather assembly down at the motor or closing the proper switch (unsure of the setup) Those are typically the most common problems. Good Luck
