Remove gas tank and clean out and add good gas to tank. Hopefully it will pick up the good gas and run right before major damage is done to engine also replace fuel filter.

ok...transmission fluid is a great cleaner...also dribble it down a carb/tb while rpm raised to clean cylinder heads, valves guides...it will smoke...its just the cheap way or use an additive.

I used that Lucas injector cleaner helped allot
