The markings on the stator, cam wheels, can be confusing.
Put the piston at verified TDC (pencil in the plug hole) with the lobes facing out, and re-inspect your TDC marks.
Otherwise, it's spark/air/fuel/compression

Jmullins, did you have spark?

The battery voltage was staying low, but it wouldn't even kick start.
You might want to try that, or see if you could borrow a friends battery to see if that helps.

Was the plug wet with fuel?
Is the fuel fresh?
Was the carb drained?
Is the pilot jet new?

It is a 4-stroke so it could likely be on the wrong stroke to fire ie. 180* out but it should backfire at least.
The other thing it could be is fuel and battery.
