    first check that spark plug is wet with fuel - are you continuing to pedal as you ease out the clutch?

    Clutch cable too tight? Clutch slips motor not turning over? Pull your magneto case, pedal and watch the rotor to see if clutch is fully engaged or slipping

    assuming its actually turning over and the clutch isnt the issue all along... and that you attached the chain...

    remove exhaust, remove carb, change spark plug to NGK brand.

    pour a little bit of fuel down the intake. if it starts,fires up, coughs, maybe even revs up a bit for a second or two... it was either the exhaust or the carb at fault.

    if it doesnt start, its electrical. or possibly crank seals. remove side covers and look for oil inside either case, usually the magneto side lets go.

    we CANNOT help you if YOU CANNOT describe the problem a bit more clearly ;)

    maybe its better that you spend money and get ripped off...
