This is a good time to remind everyone that you should not leave fuel in equipment that is not used on a very regular basis. More than likely your carburetor is gummed up from the old fuel. This can happen in less than 30 days much less 2 years.
To properly clean a carburetor you need to remove the carburetor and purchase the correct kit for the rebuild. Disassemble the
carburetor carefully making notes where each part goes. Once you have the carburetor disassembled clean it by soaking it in carburetor cleaner for a few hours. Use anned aerosol automotive carb spray cleaner to fill a small glass jar with enough cleaner to submerge the carburetor. Use a jar with a metal lid so you can gently agitate the solution occasionally to make the process more effective. You need to allow the carburetor to soak as long as it needs to remove all visible deposits. After the carburetor is cleaned allow it to dry and reassemble.

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

depending if you have a ajustment on the bowl you will need to ajust to get the right mixture if this will not fix your problem then you will need your carb rebuilt

I have this problem with my John Deere each spring.
The fuel pump is old enough that it no longer pulls the fuel through
Disconnect the fuel line from the carb
use a vacuum pump if you have one or **** the fuel through to the carb
Reattach the fuel line to the carb and see if this solves your issue.
Once I get fuel through the pump on mine it runs for the entire season no worries
Let me know
