1. Never jump start an ATV, Motorcycle, UTV..etc from a automobile! The amperage is TOO high, you can damage a lot of expensive electrical components!! ..very quickly!
You cannot home trouble shoot without a new battery or fully charged battery with good solid clean connections!!
2. Have the battery tested or simply buy a GOOD new one!
3. Does the starter spin at all? Is there a clicking noise when you push the start button? No - solenoid is bad(?) . you can check this by jumping the two large connectors on the solenoid... A good screwdriver works well...(CAREFUL - SPARKS WILL FLY!) If the starter works while jumping, the solenoid is bad - just replace it (disconnect battery while replacing).
4. If the start spins while "jumping" and nothing happens the starter may need rebuilding if the new battery/fully charged battery/jumping solenoid does not expose/solve the problem.
Do this and repost.

Sounds like a blocked main jet in the carby.
Need more detailed description of the symptoms for a better answer.

Spark timing or valve timing.
Spark time is fixed and controlled by the crank trigger. There is only two things that can change spark timing. a twisted crank ( very rare ) a sheared flywheel key (Also very rare)
Valve timing, remove the timing inspection plug and the the pull start housing, you will use the nut on the crankshaft under the pull start to turn the crank to bring the timing mark TDC-COMPRESSION STROKE - into the timing inspection hole. remove the spark plug so your not fighting engine compression to turn the motor.
Now remove the the valve cover and check the alignment line on the cam. the alignment line should be level with the top of the edges of the cylinder. if not you have a problem

I am laughing at some of these "fixes".. remove the carburetor, take it to the dealer, he will know what you need. There is a rebuild kit (or new plunger kit) for this pump.. you MIGHT be able to clean it and replace the o-ring (NOT WITH A BIGGER ONE) - but the correct one..I know this is a pain in the a$$.. let a professional repair/fix it instead of guessing..
