Next time it is hard to start perform the following:
Do your carbs have bowl drains? Loosen and make sure you get a good flow through them, you will need to catch the fuel in a container and be careful so you don't start yourself on fire. If your carbs are full and you get a good flow of fuel- should fill up a small jar after the bowls empty... this will rule out the petcpock, filter in tank/fuel lines/float and needle. If you have no bowl drains, then pull the fuel line off at the carb and re-test. then...
Pull a spark plug and make sure the plug is moist/wet/ gas smell. This will tell you if gas is getting through the carb....
Then hook the spark plug up to a spark tester and see if you get a good strong spark. Be careful here because you have gas vapors all around at this point, use your common sense and don't have the exposed spark right next to the vapors at the spark plug hole. This will rule out the electrical system.
Finally, if all these check out, you have a timing or compression issue. We can address that later if it is the issue.
