If you have a fuel filter in the gas line, it could be plugged up. From your description, it's not real clear as to exactly what's happening.
Spray a burst of starting fluid down the carb and see if it tries to fire. If it does, then you probably have a fuel supply issue. If it doesn't, you may have an ignition problem. Timing, distributor,etc.
Fuel issues- No fuel pressure (bad fuel pump); fuel not getting to carb (fuel filter, fuel line plugged); fuel getting to carb, but not to the engine (bad float, sticking valve, blockage in carb- carb rebuild should fix this)
Ignition issues- Broken or worn parts in timing assembly; bad or mal-adjusted points; shorted condenser; rotor arm tension; loose distributor; bad coil wire.
Hope this info helps to get you going! If not,get back to me.
