26HP Kohler tractor (917.276920) does not start.

My lawn tractor does not start. The flywheel spins with the turn of the key, but does not fire. Both spark plugs are firing and brand new. Fuel line is NOT frozen. Usage of starting fluid only fires about once and does not keep the engine firing for any length of time. I'm wondering if the fuel is being drawn in the engine or not. Is there anything left to do other than draining the fuel and replacing it, replacing the fuel filter, or taking the carburetor off and cleaning it? The mower worked fine for my last mow of the season before using it to snow plow, but a month later .... nothing. Any advice would be great.
