I would say for sitting for that long, you carb has laquered gas in it plugging a jet and needs a good cleaning.

I agree, remove the carbs, take em apart and soak them overnigh tin carb cleaner. It works. My old blizzard kept blowing engines due to only having one piston ring. The ring would just come off. Have you had this problem? I was able to sell the thing, not running, for 200 bucks but it mad me mad. But yes, i think you should do that to your carbs and go from there
