Default 1989 marathon

I just picked up an 89 marathon for 250 bucks. She ain't a looker, but theres little to no rust, and mostly minor cosmetic issues. if I dribble a little gas in the spark plug hole shell sputter a bit so I know itll run. Exhaust is puffing air, compression is 115-120psi, nice fat blue spark, , but carb barely (if at all) sucka my hand while cranking. Absolutely no idea when it ran last, judging by the corrosion and surface rust on the clutches it's been a while! and pushing this sonofagun is one heavy sled!

I'm thinking crank seals are shot hence the lack of vacuum on the carb. So I'll have to I'll have to pull the motor and do those. Is there anything I may be missing, or should inspect/replace while I've got it out?
