    Pull the plug and clean all traces of fuel from it. When you're certain the plug is clean and dry re-install it and then try to restart the engine for a couple of minutes...put some real effort into this. The point of all this is not for the engine to start (If it does that's a good thing) but rather to see if fuel is reaching the combustion chamber. Pull the plug and see if it's now wet and smells of gas mix, if it does fuel is reaching the engine. If not well that's another question for later.
