engine will not start.
I had a couple of engines that would not start. one was an os max, I made a new gasket for the mulffer, I bolted it on to see if it fit right, it did. but the engine would not start, after a couple of days and much **#** I realized I had not cut out the gasket center, I did that and the eng ran great.
the other engine was a old MCkoy, I took the needle valve and body out to clean them and i installed the valve body with the fuel hole up instead of down . I spent months trying to get that thing going, I finely realized what was wrong , fixed it and then it ran fine.

your engine is probley something simple.

You need fuel, compression and ignition. If the bearing is gone it will have a lot of drag and cause problems. If the engine sat the ring could be stuck. Put fuel into the engine, couple drops in the plug hole and see if it starts.

What kind of fuel are you running? Carbon is normally from oil not burning well

The oil should not be burning on top of the piston. Probably too lean. If the residue just wipes away you are probably too rich. The bad history may be from you.

Did you try putting fuel in the engine like I mentioned? Did you use new fuel and a new plug? Did you check if the ring was stuck? Is the glow driver working? Cleaning the piston is not going to change if the engine starts or not.

OS
When I get he from work I will try that put fuel in the glow hole but if it works does that mean I got to do that every time to start it and if the piston was stuck I assume the starter couldn't turn the motor over

Putting fuel in the chamber is just to check to see if it is a fuel issue. The engine should turn freely without the plug installed, if not you need to take it apart and find the problem.

Kind of basic but you should start there, make sure fuel is running to the engine, throttle curve is OK, muffler unplugged, and glow is working.

The fuel may have freed the ring up.
