Ariens Rototiller Carb Problem (Tecumseh)

I have an Ariens rototiller with a 5hp Tecumseh. Its not getting feul into the cylinder. There is feul in the carb but its not going anywhere. Any ideas?

It sat for a couple of years and I just purchased it off Ebay. The motor wasn't the problem as listed but for $21.00 it was still worth it.

Sounds like the carb needs to be cleaned. (removal, disassembly, and soaked in a bath type cleaner).
