If it's turning over and makes absolutely no indication that it's firing although you're 100% sure it's getting fuel, air and fire, check to make sure the timing chain/belt isn't broken. A fast way of doing that is see if the distributor is rotating when you crank it.

If it's sputtering when it turns over, I'd go back through it and make sure there wasn't trash in the fuel line that is either blocking the flow or has released and is back in the fuel filter or the carb. If you have any starter fluid or ether, put a few whiffs in the air system and see if that might loosen it up.

Saying a car is in, "fairly good condition other than not starting" is like saying "Other than that, President Lincoln enjoyed the play." :-)
