Hard Starting 1959 F100

I drive my truck about 2 twice a week and it got hard to start yesterday. As it is now it wont start, I see gas going down the throat and it wants to start. I am not sure what the issue is. Anyone have some tips? Thanks!

Have you made sure you've got spark to the plugs?Then, check your compression.If those two are good,all that remains is your fuel system,which may be flooding due to a stuck float.If it's flooding,those plugs might be dripping with fuel.
