Car won't start

I just got a 1984 camaro z28. It's got 110,000 miles on it and it has a 305 engine with auto trans. It was idling high so I adjusted the fast idle screw. The next day it wouldn't start. I have checked the ECM (good), the fuel pump, fuel is going into the carb, and I have spark to the plugs. It acts like it wants to start for awhile, but then nothing. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Try and turn up the idle screw see what happens. Might needt to adjust the fuel mixture screws, Also could have a carb plate gasket leak. Or a leaking vaccum leak.
