If fuel is getting in the carb, you will smell it out the tailpipe. Suck some gas through the system to prime the pump. Use some spray ether to try to get the motor to fire. Are you getting ANY spark? I do not mean at the spark plugs, from the coil. If you get no spark at the coil wire, does the voltage change at the wires that go to the coil. Even if you reverst the polarity at the coil, it will still spark if your points are opening and closing.
