With the stator not moving you shouldn't have spark. A 2 stroke isn't timed like a 4, there's no Valves. The spark plug just sparks continuously. I really don't remember ever having to deal with timing on a 2 stoke, it just spins and does its job.
When the piston hits the bottom there is no compression to make it fire. You may be right I never really got into that area on a 2 stroke
Even with a sheared key it would spark when ever the flywheel passes the stator. There would be enough drag that the flywheel would turn even with a sheared key. The timing might get screwed though. all my two stroke motors had tapered shafts and woodruff keys.

Fyi .... Ether , starting fluid , works great with diesels , but for your gas engine use gasoline and pour couple tablespoons down carb
This coming from a fella been a mechanic for 25 years and work on both
Yes that would be me : )
if you have a manual..id check the static timing...spark at wrong time=no firing (assuming fuel system operating )
funny thing with starting fluid .... sometimes it will make starting WORSE on a gas engine
If you have fuel delivery issues , bypass all that to see if your ignition is ok , lets hear her run a few seconds
Let that thing air out a few days with no plugs , then pour couple teaspoons fresh gas in the carb
If you are trying to use gas thats been sitting around 6 months , its no good
Todays gas with ethanol doesnt like to sit , it turns to worthless crap , it litterally loses its flamability
