Hello,

Thank you for using justanswer.com, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you with your concern today.

 

If they had been sitting that long and now you need to do as you say to start them yes it is a fuel problem, if they had old gas in them and it was not drained then you need to drain all the old gas out and then flush the gas tank and lines then clean the fuel filters on each and then pull and tear down the carbs and clean/rebuild them as needed. Make sure to order new carb mounting gaskets for each as well, you can order what you need from www.sbtontheweb.com .

 

If you need further assistance I will be glad to help you.

 

Thanks,

Joe
