Engine now works...multiple culprits:
1). Wiring harness was bad so was resided and replaced
2) carburetor float was cracked so has been replaced
3) gas had water in it unknown if this happened originally or due to condensation from sitting while we repaired engine

But it runs and sounds good now!
