Hello Mark, Now you did change the oil and spark plugs before you 
started the car? If not, before
you go any further change the oil and oil filter, install new spark 
plugs and points, disconnect the
coil wire and crank the engine for several minutes to coat all the 
moving parts with fresh new oil and
THEN install the coil wire , prime the carbs with an outside gasoline 
source of fresh gas and start her
