don't matter if that new carb was put on there this morning , it could have gotten dirty in it again ----- you need 3 things for it to run , spark , compression and fuel ---- for the minimum quick check with no tools but a spark plug wrench , I would suggest take out the plug and check the condition of it , if badly fouled out , clean or perferablly replace it , put the plug back in the spark plug cap and ground the tip to the metal head of the engine and spin it over , see if it sparks , if it does then put your finger over the spark plug hole and spin it over for a quick check of compression , if you think it has compression on your finger , then pour a little gas down the cylinder hole , put the plug back in and try to start it ---- you can also put some gas in a spray bottle and remove the air filter and mist the inlet hose with fuel

I agree with Fish... the carb is very picky.... the smallest dirt clump can clog and a jet... I would have someone else look at your carb to make sure that it is clean... Also and easier way then spraying gas into the carb is use carb clean... Don't use starter fluid though, that stuff is bad for a motor.... best of luck

You may need to take your fuel tank off and flush particles of rust or other trash out of it. Then clean your carb again.
