Well there could be a lot of things causing it not to crank. Make sure you have a good glow plug and your igniter is working. When you are starting the engine hold your finger over exhaust pipe to prime the engine to see if fuel in going to the carb. Make sure they are no holes in the fuel pressure line, (hose from exhaust pipe to fuel tank). Make sure your engine has good compression, if there is no compression it will never start. And old rule of thumbs is "fire,fuel, and compression it should start. Even if it looks new it wouldn't take long for someone to run the engine very hot and that would damage the engine. Take it to your local hobby shop, they could help you out. Let me know what you find.
