I'd start by checking the fuel pump. Make sure you are getting fuel pressure at the carburaters. There is also a possibility that the fuel filter may be blocked but complete blockage of a fuel filter is rare. If the car runs after you get it started by pouring gas down the carb throats, I don't think it's fuel need fuel pressure to keep the car running as well as to start it. It sounds to me like your choke heater wire is broken somewhere.
