You should try the pull starter to see if it has lost compression. If it pulls over real easy, it probably needs top end work.
The usual 'my two cents' disclaimer applies. :)

If you're sure the engine has 125 lbs (or so) of compression, I'd pull the fuel line off the carb and turn the engine over with the electric starter and see if it's pumping gas to the carb. The fuel filter or pickup tubes in the gas tank may be plugged.
