Have a look at the non return valve in the fuel line,they have a habit of getting stuck,

If fuel is coming out of the carb them it's not the non-return.

Most likely it's choked or the spark is weak. Is it still on an igniter? Might be worth pulling it out and cleaning it up.

Failing that, I'll pop over one night and have a look if you want?
