push mower wont start after new crankshaft, spark fine..

Hello all.. I recently replaced the crankshaft + key on a 5 year old briggs engine from my push mower. Granted it was the first time I've done a crankshaft, but I did all the research and put everything back together exactly. Now I can't get it to start- sparks fine, carburetor / tank clean, clean gas, oil level check. The flywheel engages the shaft fine, but no combustion. I'm pretty stumped on this one, it's probably something real obvious! If anyone has any ideas I'd be very grateful, thanks a lot..

Are you getting gas through the carb? If so, recheck the valve timing.
