Clean the carb. The gas can you use to put gas in it, make sure it has a screen. Should be good to go.

How many hours on it?
Have you ever changed the timing chain and tensioner?

You say the carb was 'cleaned': hopefully you did not use Auto Carb cleaner, as it will destroy the rubber seals inside.

Does it start?
Does it idle?
Does it run better with the choke or hot start?
