if you've cranked and cranked on it and you're sure that you have the timing correct, etc., try pulling all the plugs and squirting some motor oil in the cylinders. you might have washed all the oil out of the cylinders with fuel and the rings aren't sealing enough to get it to fire. i know this sounds weird, but it can happen with a new engine.
