Do you have spark, do you have fuel flow? Begin at the beginning and give us some details. It sounds like you may have pulled a wire off somewhere.

Well I found sometime to have a closer look last weekend. Pulled tank checked for spark. Lots of spark on both plugs. Could smell fuel when I was trying to start it last time. Thought id pull carb anyways as it smelled as if it was getting flooded. Found problem right off the bat. The rubber manifold between carb and cylinders had big rip in it. When I realigned motorthat rip had 1/4" gap. Was cconcerned I might have been sucking a bunch of dust. Both cylinders have 175psi of compression so I think I'm good ordered part going to put new plugs in as they are real easy to get at now. Thxs for all who replyed.

No idea been broken for a while by the looks of it. It was just a rubber mount. I wouldn't say I beat on but I do use it to the machines limits.

once you break a mount, and they do it with just wear and vibration, the motor can twist quite a bit. Its normally that you will have clutch issues and creeping than non start.
