You need a compression tester, auto mechanic will have one in his workshop. Was the muffler full of fuel? I assume the muffler is off the saw at this point. If there was a bunch of fuel in the muffler, leave the muffler off the saw put the plug back in and see if the saw will start and run with the muffler off. If the saw starts and runs, you have found your problem.

The saw was so badly flooded that it was dumping raw fuel into the muffler.
