Default 6 cyl 47 ford truck won't start

complete tune up including condenser, points, wires, cap & rotor. Gets good spark, gets fuel (looking down top of carb and moving accelerator rod) adding gas in carb and either. To no avail, I just won't fire. Plugs seem dry as if no fuel getting in even when adding a couple ounces of gas down carb. Check times on compression stroke on # 1 cyl to location of rotor as is ok. The engine makes no attempt to fire. This was a running engine that wasn't started for a couple of weeks. Suggestions?

Suggest asking on the Early V8 section. This section is for questions about the site and its use, not car questions.
In the meantime, do a compression check. Might be stuck valves.
