If you have fuel coming out the exhaust, I would guess the engine was flooded, too much choke. Sometimes a spart plug has deposits on it that short out the spark if the electrode gets wet with oil and fuel. If you pushed the choke back in, replaced that spark plug, and given another few pulls, I think it probably would have started. So, change the spark plug, go to full choke, pull her through five times, put the choke back in half way and see if it will start
