I'm a little distant, in Palo Alto, but in any case have you looked down the throat of the carb with the throttle valve in the open position to see if you might not have flooded it? That is a common reason for no start with our engines (at least with my 1600 with the solex carb). If that were the case, just remove the throttle return spring, leave the valve open and the air cleaner cover off and let it evaporate. You can also blow air down the throat with a 'cold' hair dryer to speed things up. When most of it is gone, put spring back on, then try starting it after opening the throttle all the way (step on it once and hold open so as not to pump any more gas in) and then crank it over.
