Not a desirable thing to do, but you may try to push compressed air into the carb through the fuel line inlet. Start off with low (5psi) pressure. You're probably going to have to open it up.

Stale fuel for 15 months of sitting. Time for a carburetor rebuild.....

The needle and carburetor insides are gummed with varnish from the stale fuel.
