    take the carb apart and make sure the jet isn't clogged with trash.
    make sure the choke is not on (ie: when "on" it blocks the intake flow)
    make sure you don't have an air leak where the carb mounts to the manifold.
    make sure the head is bolted down good.

    sounds like you got something stuck either blocking fuel to carb or blocking fuel from getting from carb to motor

    take out plug, put a few drops of fuel in and put plug back - if it starts for a bit then all you need is to find why it's not getting fuel
