OK so i just got a puch maxi that has only 500 orig miles on it but it has been sitting in a garage for a long ass time. Is there a list of things i should do/check? the gas tank is rusted (im already on top of that) I cleaned out the carb and made sure that was all running. I tried 3 differnt spark plugs, the one that was in it, one from a motobecane and one from a garelli and i cant get it to start. It turns over just fine but the minute i let go of the decompression/clutch it dies. I would love to just go over everything i might need to do.

oh and on another side note, when i first tried to kick start it it kept making a horn noise no mattter if the horn was turned on or off. so i disconected the horn.
