Tecumseh 5.5Hp Snowking. will not start

I have a Tecumseh 5.5Hp. engine on a Ariens machine. I just ran the machine for the first time this season Xmas day and blew 16" of snow with no problem. (The machine was put away last season without a fuel additive). Towards the end of a 3hour blow a noticed the machine start to stall, especially under load. The next day it would not start. I dumped the fuel and checked the hole in the nut to the bowl for blockage. It still will not start. Any suggestions
