the engine will turn over a rev up a little, but is shotty and then stalls out, just bought it, hasnt been used for 2+ years, gives me the feeling like the fuel isnt reaching the engine, but filled up and still keeps stalling... just want an idea of what could be before taking it in for tune up and diagnosis

Sounds like it might have old fuel residue in carbs. the older fuel sits it becomes like tar and can plug jets causing poor performance

sounds like the fuel filter with it not running right when it does runs tells me it could also be a fould out plug dont quote me but it is a few cheaper things to check before you start spending tons of money
