You could blow into the exhaust pressure fuel line to push the fuel into the carb. Stop when you see the fuel reaches the carb nipple. Now lets see if it starts....

You guys have got to look up some FAQs.. saying your car won't start is just to general of a description to trouble shoot. There are so many things that could be wrong.

Virus, are you using a starter box?
