Default Newbie: 78 300D won't crank

Hello, I just purchased a 1978 300D. I just bought it yesterday and this morning it will not crank.

-I have primed the glowplugs (15 seconds)
-Pumped & Floored the pedal (while cranking)
- Hit the plug switch intermittently (while cranking)

It seems to be getting fuel.. am I missing something? Any help appreciated.
