If you left the fuel petcock turned ON during the week it sat in the shed it may have run fuel through the carb's float valve and then into the crankcase. Even if the petcock was OFF it may possibly not seal well. This would flood the engine causing it not to start and could also explain the dripping from the exhaust. Your exhaust likely always has a certain amount of unburned oil in it due to the amount of unburned fuel/oil mixture that a 2 stroke engine wastes. A simple piston port design such as this cannot help but waste a certain amount, and the oil part of the unburned fuel tends to collect in the exhaust pipe, eventually burning up when the motor is run hard enough and long enough.
