Check the compression. If the compression is low the vehicle will be difficult to start. If that's not it you probably have something wrong with the injectors. Check the temperature sensor, air flow sensor and anything else that might be involved. If you can find a code scanner that works with your vehicle, that could be a big help in finding the problem.

Remove all spark plugs, turn the engine by hand and get the #1 spark plug at TDC on the compression stroke. Install the distributor so the rotor is pointing to the # 1 plug position on distributor cap. Start the engine and set the time it with a timing light.Remove all spark plugs, turn the engine by hand and get the #1 spark plug at TDC on the compression stroke.

Will fouled spark plugs couse a Chevy 350 not to crank after cleaning the carb?

no The starter should engage whether the plugs are fouled or not. However, the engine may not start if enough plugs are fouled. If you feel that you have flooded the engine or fouled the plugs you may need to clean them before it will start. If you have caused the carburetor float level or other settings to be significantly changed, the engine will flood and it will not start.

Depending on model, this engine may not have glow plugs. In engines with glow plugs, they are located next to the injectors on the top of the engine, under the plastic cover.

if the injector is getting fuel, check for spark at the plugs, it might be the plug wires, bad plugs, rotor, pick up, or coil
