Go through the fuel system correctly, that old beast deserves to be fixed correctly!!!

Pull and rebuild the carb, check all hoses, connections, gaskets on all of the blocks between the carb and block, impulse.
But before buying anything, after you have the carb off, go ahead and pull the muffler and look at your piston condition, that will
tell you your next step.
When you have the carb apart, you will likely see a wad of snuff in the screen, that would be the remains of your fuel filter insert,
so you will need a new fuel filter, remove the spring/lever/needle, and hold the bare carb body up to a light and peek through that passage, then blow it out with some air, then look again, and visually verify that it is clear, then blow out the other crud, and rebuild with a new kit.

Looking for air leaks is one of the last things to be doing..........
