Fuel pump, fuel pump relay, TDC lead are all possibilities. Check if you have a spark & then check if the fuel is coming through by removing the fuel line off the carb & putting it into an empty bottle.

Ok.

Fuel pump relay

Marked

CARTIER

its behind the glove box ( under it ) and a large black fuse.

You need to bridge it with a paperclip.

Or you could before you do that whip off the fuel pipe to the carb , place in a coke can then try and crank engine.

Get any fuel ?
