Starting trouble on a 1978 Yamaha DT 175

OK, this is my problem, i have a 79 Dt175 on a YZ 125 frame, with brand new rings that havent even been broke in completely. The problem i think is within the carb, i checked the plug and its firing great! But i cant push start it or even kick start it. I got tired of walking up the hill around my house so after about an hour of pushing, using the choke, and kick the ever living s*** out of it, i cant figure it out...Any suggestions?
