Sans reeds, pressurizing the chamber will be impossible as it will always be able to vent/draw from the atmosphere; this in turn would prohibit you from making it through a full cycle (so you wouldn't be able to tell anyway). Reeds are so easy to check, I have to agree with Dillon here - that's first (could be pinched, snapped, covered in sealant, etc.).

I assume from your first post that you're using an aftermarket carburetor and running premix? The assessment that "air is not being sucked through the carb" seems spot on, which leaves only a few likely culprits: reeds, intake, carb (I assume you're testing this with any air filters removed). Keep us posted.
