77 Puch Maxi won't start all of a sudden

Ok. 77 Maxi. 70 kit on it. 15.15 sha. 72 jet. Thing ran fine. Sat in my basement for a month. I took it out yesterday and tried to start it and it felt like my pedal was a rock. Got it "started" today and it threw up a ton of fuel from the exhaust. I put a new plug in and I still can't get it to start. Any ideas?

Clean the carb. I guess you don't speak ERMAHGERD.

Re: 77 Puch Maxi won't start all of a sudden

Yeah, clean your carb, and turn it over a few times without the spark plug in (hold the clutch lever and pedal ... and maybe turn the moped off while you do this, just to avoid potential gas fumes being near something that sparks). You've probably got some extra fuel hanging out in your cylinder/pipe, and that should help clear a little bit of it out.
