Cranking is turning over. When the starter operates it's turning over the engine internals. What you probably mean is it won't fire

Start with a blast of starting fluid or pour a little gas down the carb/throttle body to rule out lack of fuel, then move on to spark.

Sorry it won't turn over we have a MC2150 Carb when I open the buffer fly give a pump I see gas squirting out so gas delivery is not a problem.

If it won't turn over you should be looking at the starter, solenoid, battery, and cables, not the igniton. Ignition is responsible for spark, not for cranking/turning over.

Does it make any kind of sound when you turn the key, like a "click" or anything?
