If an engine has proper fuel mixture , a timed spark and at least 100 psi compression all the laws of physics demand that a combustion must take place ,,, what are you missing?

If you're 100% sure you have spark and fuel, it's time to do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero, it's a valve timing problem. HTH. -Jim
