Stepping back and looking at the overall situation. You said it wasn't sudden, started acting up. Being in Mexico I would think bad fuel or dirty fuel clogging the carb or tank. Did you ever try to start it with the fuel cap off or opened. A clogged gas cap vent can cause fuel starvation.

Thanks for your suggestions. We switched out the fuel, cleaned the petcock filters, and installed new plugs. And we confirmed that the tank was venting. But again, it didn't start.
