Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors
Did you make sure you're getting fuel into the carb again? As far as I know, the carb bowl should always have fuel in it: when the float that's connected to the needle valve rises in the bowl, the needle valve shuts and stops the fuel from entering and flooding it. One common thing with those small Briggs engines is that the carbs get gummed up with our ethanol loaded gas. You may want to remove the carb, put a rebuild kit in it and soak it for a couple days. After you do this, I would recommend treating the fuel with ethanol treatment or stabilizer (sta-bil works pretty well) to keep it from getting gunked up again. The last small engine I rebuilt the carb in, I had to rebuild and soak 3 different times before it would move fuel properly. It's aggravating!

Check the voltage on the battery to see if it is 12 volts or higher. If not, charge battery.
Then check all starting-related electrical connections-- sounds like there is a dirty connection somewhere if the battery is charged.

i had a similar problem on a 20 hp v twin. there was trash in the fuel shut-off solenoid screwed in the bottom of the float bowl stopping fuel. It will come out without pulling the whole carb apart.

If it has a plastic intake manifold there is your culprit. The flanges warp and produce vacuum leaks and all three.
