Briggs and Stratton 14.5HP 287707 1224E wont start

I am trying to revive a mower with briggs and Stratton 287707 1224E 14.5HP motor. It wouldn't start after hitting something 2 years ago. Just looking into it, replaced the flywheel key. spark plug is showing spark, I did purchase new carb because original was all gummed up.  
Engine will turn over, but not catch at all.
 
Short video of it trying to start: 
 
Any ideas?
 
Thank you in advance,
 
Steve

    Did you try a spritz of gas (NOT starting fluid) down the carb throat? If it fires and quits you have a fuel delivery problem. If no joy try a new spark plug. Also check compression.

    I tried starting fluid, no go.  I pulled fuel line from carb and there was gas there, I will try putting some in the carb and check that.  Compression, I will have to find a test gauge, don't own one yet.
     
    Thank you,
