Did you look to see if you had spark when it would not start. Just pull the plug, lay the plug against the engine and then try to start it. You should see a spark jump across the open points on the spark plug

If you don't have spark you might look at a replacement coil. I just put one in a 5 horse and the new coil assemblies no longer use points. They have a hall effect sensor that triggers the spark.
