Unhappy 1981 srv won't start... help..

1981 srv 540 ran fine last year. not run a lot, just around my 10 acres some. hard pull to start, but it usually pops after 1-2 pulls.

at end of season I drained gas, oiled each cylinder and pulled twice. wrapped openings to keep out mice, stored on trailer with cover.

this year, put in fresh premium fuel and "checked" everything. it will "pop" once on both starter fluid or gas. I can see fuel in the lines. new plugs and coil. pulled exhaust to assure no back pressure or critter nest. has spark and fuel but will not start.

only thing I can think of now is possible weak spark??? magneto??

hoping some of the experienced guys out here can give me a few more ideas. thanks for any thoughts. new guy to forum, but I play some with smaller engines.
