I would absolutely change the timing belt. If the belt goes it takes a bunch of valves with it.  New points, condenser, plug wires. Rebuilding the carbs would be a good thing to do.
  You can replace the o ring on the bottom of the carbs with out taking them off. Just get an o ring from  the local parts store, taking an old one with you for the correct size and replace it. You just pull gently on the plug and it should pop out.
  I would turn the key until the fuel pump fills up the carbs and check for leaks under the carbs. If there are none go ahead and start it.
