The only issue is that the car should be warm.

But, seriously, before you start messing around with the carbs you should be 100% certain that it's not anything else.

Most of the time the issue is not the carbs, but something else in the ignition/fuel delivery system. Too many people assume it's the carburettors without enough reasonable evidence. From there the carbs get fiddled with/disassembled until the only resolution at that point is to take it in to a shop.

#1 - ensure that the ignition system is working correctly and the timing is right.

#2 - Ensure the fuel pump works correctly and the lines are clean.

#3 - use a local fuel supply to the carbs and try to start the car that way.
