Did you take the plugs out and verify the sparkl at the trode?

Then with a finger in the hole bump the engine and cinfirm compression? Better yet compression gauge, shrader valve in.

Then look for fuel cranking into a bucket.

Connect the carb and swab to see if the needle coming off the seat. Look for accelerator pump function and the pump shot in the primary/front carb barrel.

Cold time engine from true TDC.
