Default Starting problems

I tried to start my revo 3.3 today after about a week of just sitting there because i had to replace the engine mount (engine was cleaned out). I dropped my wand once so i now use the glow starter for the glow plug. I put in some fresh fuel and I put the high speed needle to four turns out and the low speed is flush like the factory settings say and i tired three different near new glow plugs with two of them being the traxxas heavy duty ones but for some reason my revo wont start. The glow starter was starting my brothers car that was right next to me and was also lighting each plug that i put in the car. The car was working perfectly before i broke the mount and now it doesnt even sound like it is igniting. Can you help me?

Cheers Mike.

are you getting fuel to the engine?? Can you see it move throgh the line if not hold you finger over the carb inlet and create a vacum this should insure that fuel gets to the carb...I have never had a problem with my revo not wanting to start... mine just does not want to move now after I put a new clutch and shoes in it
