whats plug look like?
bet it comes out dry.
the fuel tank needs to be thoroughly cleaned before anything is started.
there's a good chance dirt in carburetor has plugged jet.
i'd start by pulling carb and checking carb for dirt.

other side of the coin
float needle has dirt in the seat and engine is flooded.
i flooded mine today,i turned off choke,held throttle at half and cranked away til it started.took about 25 feet to get it to fire up.

Welcome to the forum. You've come to the right place for help but we're going to need more information.

I don't know what you mean by "won't turn over". Do you mean the engine is seized, or won't start?

It needs three things to run: Fuel, air and ignition. Confirm that you have all three and get back to us with a little more details of what you have done and what you found.
