It Runs!

I was able to start it using starter fluid, but it wouldn’t stay running. It was apparent that no fuel was flowing through the carb, not surprising since it hadn’t run in ~30yrs. I was able to find a rebuild kit locally and rebuilt the carb. While rebuilding, I found “9-80 RH” scratched into the inside of the carb body. I’m guessing this means it was last rebuilt by “RH” in September of 1980; which makes sense since it was last registered in 1983. After the rebuild I was able to get it running on 3 cylinders; next week I’ll replace the spark plugs and a few ignition components which should fix this.
