make sure all of your grounds are good. tip the machine up on its side slightly so you dont loose the oil and take the stator cover off and see if you can turn it over eaisly with the nut on the end of the crank. it could be your starter clutch. did you hear any grinding or rough sounds before it quit. it is possible if you are using a cheap ebay starter you got a second bad one. not trying to be smart but there is a lot of confusion between crank and start. confirming with the plug out the motors spins and makes a good spark. with the plug in the motor will not spin at all or it spins and wont start. this will help me pick a path to start with.
