Pulling and cleaning your carbs is pretty straight forward. just keep track of everything and where it all goes. when taking apart the carbs turn in all the adjustment screws and count the turns (don't over tighten just until they bottom out,write it down if you have to) so when its time to put them back together you will know where to set them..there are a lot of good info in the how to section..just my 0.02...

The biggest problem will be varnish buildup in all the small passages in the carbs. If the gas was left to evaporate, there is varnish built up that the aerosol stuff doesn't work well on. I would remove the carbs and clean properly, making sure to clean all the small fuel and air passages that lead to the different circuits in the carb.

Check the air flow, and fuel flow, if they are out of wack or not the right mixture you will smoke a piston or something. Just check it out, if it seems to be running good i wouldn't worry about that though

I would leave the oil pump setting as is for now....at least until you have a good flavor on how it runs. Then calculate oil usage & adjust as needed.
Needless to say, clean out fuel tank really well (might apply to oil tank, as well)

BTW - Nice find!!

The best thing for cleaning "green" carbs is Mercury Marine ( Power Tune ) have had brass that was just ugly. Soak it in that overnite and looks like new the next day, no scrubbing or brushing needed.

I would also try to get oil down to the crank being it has sat so long before you try firing it.

Remove plugs & put a squirt of oil in each cylinder....turn the engine over by hand.
