Have you downloaded the manual from the top of this section yet? It may help you with some of your issues.

Have you tried starting with starting fluid?

Have you FULLY cleaned the carbs?

Does your left side cover have all three hollow locating dowels installed?

Have you measured compression?

Yes - many major auto parts stores will 'rent' you a tool for free - charge a deposit that is fully refunded when you bring the tool back.
