You need to conduct the standard " no start " tests.
1. test for spark - pull the spark plug wire off of #1 spark plug. Stick a screwdriver up the boot of the plug until it touches the little metal connection. Get the screwdriver shaft close to a nice clean metal ground on the engine. DO NOT touch any other part of your body to the car. Have someone turn over the engine. Watch for a nice healthy blue spark jumping from the shaft of the screwdriver to the ground. No spark? Open the distributor cap and watch for the points opening and closing while the engine is turned over. No spark there? Use a 12 volt test light to see if you have power at the coil when the ignition switch is turned on. Trace it back to the ignition switch but you MUST have spark down at those plugs.
2. Fuel - take the fuel line off of the carb and run it into a container that can hold gas. Have someone crank over the car. You should see healthy spurts of gas going into the container from the fuel line when someone cranks the car over. No spurts? bad fuel pump or blockages in the fuel line from the tank to the fuel pump. ( or is it out of gas? don't laugh, people have been fooled before)

I'd rather have a partial bottle in front of me than a partial frontal lobotomy.
