If you filled the fuel tank with gasoline enhanced with ethanol the fuel may be bad and caused the carburetor to gum up. Also Honda engines have a low oil sensor and from your description of the oil, can cause problems with the sensor and the engine won't start. Try changing the oil first and then adding a small engine gasoline additive that helps with stale gasoline starting problems.
What brand of engine is this? Does the engine turn over at all? Have you cleaned all the electrical connection with contact or tuner cleaner? Is the starter connected? Have any wires come off or broken? Many times the starter has a problem with the pinion gear not not kicking out. It wont engauge the engine an generally rust is the issue. If you can remove the starter you can start ther an see what you have. Is the cable lose onthe starter? So many things to check. Try these an write back.
Valves need to adjusted with a feeler gauge (6 and 8). Allows no kickback during start. Check air filter if still running rich. Hold filter away from housing, if it pulls it in most likely clogged. Hope it helps
This is a motorcycle question. Repost in motorcycles.
If it is like older electronic ignitions, it has a start and a run section. The start section can fail and the run section will still be good. Will it push start or does it have a kick start? Been a while since I had a bike.
First make sure that you have a spark; remove the spark plug and position it so that the threads are touching the engine frame. Pull the cord and check the plug for spark. If you have spark, put the plug back in.
Get some starting fluid and spray it into the air intake of the carbuerator. Try to start the engine. If it starts and then stops, that indicates that you have a fuel delivery problem. Clean the fuel filter.
