1947 WC Allis Chalmers won't start - need help!

Mike Looking for help trying to start a 1947 WC Allis Chalmers. Installed new spark plugs and a new condenser, and there is spark coming from all four spark plugs, but the engine will only 'pop' when turned over. After taking the spark plugs out, the spark plugs from cylinders 3 and 4 were wet with gas and you could see combustion burns, but the spark plugs from cylinders 1 and 2 were dry and still looked brand new. We took the carburator apart and it is clean and appears to function properly (float and pin move freely). I beleive that the timing is set correctly, but I am trying to get a manual to verify. I am not sure how the ports in the head for the fuel are designed, but it seems like there just is no gas getting to cylinders 1 and 2. This is the first time we have tried to run it in about 6 years, so any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated!
Mugway Just a suggestion,do a compression test,might have a couple valves stuck open.
charles moody sounds like the gasket behind the manifold is leaking, any leaks from the top of the carberator to the block on a ac is a no no, it sucks air there and no gas ,it interups the vac that is needed for the updraft carb to function corectly, it don't take much of a leak to keep the engin from running at all ,,,, exsperince taught me this,,,, cemoody
