Have you tried spraying starting fluid in throttle inlet? ifit starts and runs then dies after starting fluid trial check fuel pump/fuel filter

Sounds like gummed up fuel lines do to the old gas going bad from sitting so long,I had the same problem with mine after it sat for about four months. I had to siphon the old gas out and add new premium gas and change out the fuel filter. after sitting for so long,sounds like your fuel lines are varnished. Cant say for sure,just speaking from experience

I would suggest starting with the basics: 1. Fuel 2. Air 3. Spark , once you know which of these three you do NOT have, you can dig deeper into what you need to diagnose.
