Hello I will help,
All that stuff has to be coming from somewhere and that is the tank. You need to drop the tank and get it cleaned, replace both filters and check the carb bowl to see what is in there.
You also need to be sure any rubber parts of the fuel lines are not cracking, it only takes a pinhole in a line to prevent the pump from pulling fuel from the tank.
Please let me know what I can do to help
To access the float bowl in the carb you will need to remove the top and any linkage for the choke or accelerator pump that prevents you from removing the top/
If you have pressure in the filter try opening the fuel line to the carb and see if the pressure comes out there. The spec is a pint of fuel in 15 seconds of cranking the engine. If the pump delivers that and the filters are clean the needle and seat in the carb might be stuck closed. Getting all the gunk out of the carb is what would need to be done. Installing a :cab kit" will replace many parts and gaskets, you will have to manual clean the jets and air bleeds. If this is your first time cleaning a carb I suggest spending a few hours watching you tube videos on how to do it. You may not find your specific carb but the process will be explained. The carb kit will have a blow up of the carb parts.
