Angry dodgeram1500 81? Wont Start Carb Issues?

(VIDEO)!!!hey guys hows it going... took carb off put it back on and took it around block once...sinse then hasnt startede... iv tried going out there alot starting it i swear something in one of those cases needs to be looked at iv heard a metal on metal before i swear lol..

but uhhh i need to get it started again if i can... iv been messing with idle and gas screws it was sounding ok in the video so i thought id wait and come see what u guys have to say on which screw to move next...

i was told it could be something to do with timing now? timing gun maybe? price?

Turning these screws isn't gonna get it started . Pull the spark plugs and see if it's flooded . If the carbs getting gas and all the pedal pumping you've been doing may of flooded it out .

Looks like a bad carb. Did you put new takers on you pulled it off? Also, did you get all the vacuum lines attached correctly?

if the carb wasnt working how would i know? it always pushed smoke thats why i was gonna change it but why isnt it starting? should i take all plugs out labeling all the lines of course....

how would i know if its flooded..

would cleaning the carb help me? if i got some carb cleaner ...

it just seems its something worse but i wanna keep giving it a try regardless hopefully she fires again...
