    Try a new air filter first, even if the old one looks clean. Change fuel brands also. Try the simplest first.

    Last try...i changed the plug again and changed the fuel. Completely emptied the tank and put new in. It started right up!
    Just in time for the big snow. Thanks to all for the help.

    Don't forget to put stabilizer in the fuel. You never know how long before you will use it again.
