The symptom you describe indicates that the fuel passages inside the carburetor are clogged from old fuel varnish. To repair the problem will require removal of the carb, disassembly, soaking all metal components in a commercial grade of carburetor cleaner, checking all internal pages for restriction, probing the high and low speed fuel jets with the appropriate size wire drill, reassembly with new gaskets, draining and flushing the fuel tank, petcock and line, reinstalling the carb and adjusting the idle sped and mixture.
