You most likely have a carburetor that has gotten plugged up with dirt or gum from old gasoline or an accumulation of dirt over the hears.
The carburetor will most likely need to be cleaned and rebuilt with a complete carburetor repair kit.
There is also a possibility that the fuel solenoid that is attached to the bottom of the carburetor may have failed and needs replaced or the connection to that solenoid may be bad.
Most likely is the dirty carburetor, though.
