Briggs & Stratton 3.5 HP engine won't start

I have a B&S 3.5 HP Model 092202 1 cyl 4 cycle engine on an edger which will not start. If I remover the air filter I cn get it to run momentarily on starting fluid but it seems not to pick up the gas. I have made one problematic mistake in that since new in 2000 I have left the gas in the tank over the winter. this is the first summer of not starting.

You will have to remove the fuel bowl from bottom of carburetor and clean the varnish out of the carburetor.Take note that the screw on the bottom of the carburetor is a fuel metering jet,there are small passages in it that may need to be cleaned out with a small wire,be careful not to enlarge the holes in it,they are important for fuel metering correctly.You may have to soak it in carb cleaner. Be sure to use good carb cleaner. The brand name Berkebile 2+2 is the best followed by Gumout.
