screw the mixing screws in and back off half a turn. then try again, when started adjust the screws to best suit you need. only half turn each time.

Continuity is one thing. A shorted winding is another. The motor has a problem. The overload may be burned out too.

That does seem low, but it's a 2cycle.
It hasn't been run hot or w/o proper gas/oil mix has it ?
Will it fire with a squirt of starter fluid ?
If you squirt some oil into the spark plug hole, does the compression go up very much ?
If it has spark and won't fire w/starter fluid sprayed in thru the carb, it's most likely a ring/piston/cylinder problem.
If it fires with starter fluid, it's fuel not getting into the cylinder.
