Everything but take out the welch plugs and still won't go
You can over soak it and if you soak it in any strong solvent that does not affect gasoline solvent you have wasted your time. You should never need to remove welch plugs. With more information someone might be able to better advise you. Pull the plug and with an oil can or the like squirt a small amount of fuel into the cylinder and then screw the plug back in and see if it will start and run.

After you check airflow (i.e. cleaning up the air filter), check fuel flow.
I'm assuming the gas is clean and fresh.
Is the gas flowing from the tank?
Is the gas getting into the carb?
If yes, then the next step is to remove the carb.
Check the diaphram between the carb and the tank, this acts as your fuel pump. Is this diaphram in good condition? If not replace it.
While the carb is removed, clean all the little ports (jets) into the carb with WD-40 or carb spray-on carb/choke cleaner (automotive section of your local auto store). Blow it dry with compressed air (canned or from a air compressor). Replace any gasket so the carb doesn't have seepage when reinstalled.
It may sound a bit daunting, but its an easy job and may stores carry the necessary parts. Try WalMart, or auto stores, if they don't then a good hardware store should. Or, a lawn mower shop should have it.
Good luck, I'm rebuilding doing the same thing to one of my mowers this week. Piece of cake.

SOURCE: HI there, I got
There could well be a build up of sediment and debris in the main jet to the carburetor. It is easy to get to and clean. It is the brass bolt that holds the lower float bowl onto the main body of the carburetor. To clean it, drain your gas. Remove the bolt and external washer UNDER the carburetor bowl. Clean out the bowl of any sediment and/or water. To clean the brass bolt, use no metal objects. Carb/Choke aerosol spray cleaner will do the job. Pay close attention to the hole in the bottom of the bolt and the very small holes about 2/3 of the way up the bolt. Clean till shiny with holes cleared and reinstall. Your fuel flow problem and shut off condition may be solved.
