Well, a couple of fuel-related things come to mind:

1. The carb is gravity-fed, so the petcock in the off position could be preventing the fuel in the line from filling the bowl because of suction.

2. The accelerator pump isn't really in play when starting. The priming kicks should pull in the fuel you need, as long as the bowl is at the right level (see #1)
