    Check the glowplug warmer to see if it is lighting the glow plug up. IS there fuel getting to the carb? If there is a primer on the tank press it tell the fuel comes to the carb and then stop and then try starting it. It might be flooded also just take your glow plug back out and then turn it upside down and pull the cord tell excess fuel comes out of the head. 1 other thing that could be is the engine is old and might need a new piston and sleeve.

    Try replacing the fuel lines too, may be letting in air somewhere, and what DJ said

    Are you getting fuel to the carb.? Whats your compression like and did the engine run before you purchased the car? RED

    i kinda had the same prob but with my tc3 the lines were leting in air once i fixed that i properly tuned it and it is a rocket now oh yeah covert your motor to a bump start cuz pull start can be a pain in the azz!
