In your field
As you've got spark the engine must be turning over, otherwise you wouldn't know.... You say that the starter just clicks and the battery is new....If the engine is turning, what do you mean....
If you have spark and fuel and the engine is turning, you've got another problem.....but one that's related.....The most likely, especially if you carried on until the engine became so hot, it stopped you!....the cylinder head gasket has blown....Check the oil and see if it's turned a milky grey colour.....If it has....cylinder head and or gasket....but that's not the end....You may have seized rings or seals....Is it a rotary engine?... With engines these days, the operating temp is much higher, part of falling in with emission controls.....the down side..... if it over heats, much more damage.....Check the compression and see if there's leakage.
