Cool Help Carbed 2.3 not starting!!!!!

Alright guys i have a couple questions..... there was a carb on my ranger that worked but had low power so i took it off and the reason it had no power was that the secondary was rusted shut anyway i got another carb that i know works and hooked up of the same way as the old one and i cant get it to start....... it seems to try but just wont do it....... the only lines i have hooked to the carb are the gas line and a vacuum line from the intake manifold to the passenger side of the carb..... the EGR was non existant on the old one so i didn't bother hooking it up on the new one either..... long story but it just wont work.... sorry for writing a novel here guys but i need some help pronto. Thanks!!!
