Did you check to see if the glow plug is good??? Also dont over prime the engine you might be flooding it, to much fuel and it wont start. give the engine just enough fuel to start. Watch the fuel line when you see the fuel hit the carb stop priming and see if it will start. Also check if the battery in your glow heater is good.

Sounds like your flooding it. Take the glow plug out, turn the car over to empty out any fuel in the engine. While the glow plug it out check to make sure its still good.

If all is good, put the glow plug back in, then prime it so the fuel JUST reaches the carb. then give it a go.
