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.
Did not verify spark on electrodes, i'll try that tonight with new plugs,
and a compression test!
Ya did the timing by takin out #1 plug, saw the piston was at highest point, timing mark on balencer was at 0.. ect

Thanks for the ideas! I'll give them a try tonight.
