I doubt this is the problem but the stator is grounded to the front of the block on the mag side, should be a 10mm bolt. Might be worth checking, other than that try hooking a 9 volt battery to the fuel pump and see if it starts.

You may also want to try unhooking the temp sensor and pulling it a couple times, if it sounds like it wants to start then plug the sensor back in and hold it wide open while you pull it over. If that works then you may have a weak stator coil.
