Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If you are certain the timing is correct and you are getting good gas supply pressure to the carb then be sure there are no leaks and restrictions and the fuel pump is pumping as it should. If so drain and clean the carburetor fuel bowl and jets. It is likely a carburetor issue. If theis does not resolve the problem I recommend rebuilding the carburetor and also checking for vacuum leaks at the intake manifold. Let me know
