I drained the tank and refilled it with fresh fuel + sea foam. The only way it would run was when I was spraying carb cleaner in the intake. What do you guys recommend I do next?

First thing I would check is the fuel pick-up orifices. I've seen these get clogged up from sitting. Carborators differ in design but somewhere in the parts that go down into the bowl there are small holes that fuel is drawn up into the carb through. I've seen them in the bolt that goes up from the bottom to hold the bowl on. Two small holes in the side of that bolt go to a hole drilled down the middle. A paper clip will do the job or any other metal object that will fit in the hole.
