    Just to let everyone know how we did it. After storage the float valve was stuck, as indicated by fuel running out the carb overflow tube. Removed the carb, removed the float bowl by removing pin, remove the float valve and spray the entire carb with carb cleaner. Reassemble, open the choke, spray starter fluid into the carb, close choke 3/4 and pull to start. Had to spray starter fluid twice into carb to start, using a long nozzle deep into carb. Next time I will use chemical stabillzer to prevent gum build-up during storage.
