I have changed the wire harness, carburetor, spark plugs, new battery, ignition coils and my 1973 honda 350f won’t run still. There is compression but won’t work.

obviously we need air, fuel, and spark.
-with the ignition on, check voltage at coils
-pull a spark plug and ground it against the motor, kick it over to check for spark
-check the timing with a static timer
-check valve clearances
-check that fuel is getting to carbs and that carbs are spotless inside

Those are the steps and rough order that I'd follow in order to diagnose

Just make sure not to shock the crap out of yourself when checking for spark... it won't kill you butbits not fun. Ask me how I know

If you're going about 30 mph in the pouring rain and reach down to push a spark plug cap back on, that can come very close to killing you, don't ask me how I know.

Okay it’s definitely the static timing is off, do you guys have a youtube video for my specific bike I can watch so i get get it right? or know anybody in snellville area that’s willing to help ?

This is the first thing that popped up on Google. Should get you 90% there (assuming you're on points Ignition)
