Default 88 accord won't start

Hello
I have a 88 accord carb. Was at a stop light and it died, and would not start. Towed it home and checked the coil, cap and rotor. All good, and I have spark to the plugs. Sprayed starting fluid into the carb while turning over, doesn't even try to start. I'm about at my limit of things to check/try, any help on next steps would be much appreciated. Thanks bob.

If you have a timing light, hook it up to see if enough spark is generated to flash the light.
