Response to Well today I squirted a little fresh gas down the carb, and still no workie. So,

Squirt a few shots of engine oil into the cylinders, about a tablespoon's worth or slightly more and crank the engine without the plugs to work the oil into the rings. If the cylinders are gas washed the oil will increase compression somewhat and allow the engine to crank faster [less ring friction]. Been there...done that.
