I have gas to the carb but doesn't draw on it's own.
Valves have been set. Cylinder walls were deglazed and the grooves in pistons were all cleaned before new rings installed. The guy at the machine shop said the valves all looked good and there were no cracks so he only replaced the guides???

Does it develop vacuum? Pull the hose off the carb inlet and put your hand over it while cranking. You should feel it suck.

With the air cleaner hose off try to start it but as you do hold your hand over the carb air intake. You should both feel a good suction there and also when you remove your hand it should be covered with gas. If you do not have both then your compression is to low as in no suction or if no gas your carb is clogged some place. Note if you do that it also might try to start. If low suction put say a table spoon of ATF/gas mix in each cylinder and try to start it. The ATF/gas mix 50/50 will up compression and also burn like gas and may end your problems

that dont even make sense. once valve guides are worn the valves "walk around" the seats and get them pounded out and the seats become width is like 1/8" and guaranteed with worn guides they will be wider. this is the very first time i have even heard of this operation. i think if the valves were good as he says then the guides were good also. i think maybe he told you that and charged for that cause he wanted a little extra cash, but why not do the job right the first time. some thing here is not computing. have to know for sure whats going on and not thinks so or presume. need to do a compresion check on this and give the results.

If you do not draw at the carb, then it is an intake leak, compression, valve timing or valve clearance issue.

I would bet valve timing or clearance if you are hearing noises in exhaust.

Check the clearances again.
