Well, I finally solved my issue. Don't really feel good about it, but I am still going to post on here to hopefully help someone in the future. After determining my valves were set correctly, I started trouble shooting the basic principles of combustion engines. I checked to ensure I had fire, which I did. I pulled the fuel hose off the carb and turned over to make sure I had fuel supply going to carb, and I did. I then sprayed a little carb cleaner in the carb and turned over and it fired up for a second. What does this tell me? Well apparently even though fuel was getting to the carb, something in the carb was blocked/clogged up. The only think I can figure is that when I removed the valve cover off the side of the engine that has the tube running up to the fuel pump and then re-installed it, I must have got some dirt/trash in the tube which it then sent to the carb. To solve my problem, I removed the carb and gave it a good cleaning. Re-installed it and it fired up as it should. Thanks to everyone who replied to try to help me out, and I hope this helps someone in the future.
