Hi Joe,
before tearing the engine apart,there are a couple of checks you could do. Move the air inlet tube out of the way,and put your hand over the carb inlet while kicking it over,you may need someone else to kick it over,but you will feel if it is sucking.
Check the pilot jet carefully and also the passage it screws into,it takes very little muck to block it.
