Thanks Corgi. I forgot to mention all that in my previous post. You are correct, it's best to clean out the whole fuel system if he wants to try starting it. Tank, fuel line, float bowl, the whole nine yards.
If the fuel looks like it still had oil in it when he got it back, I would try starting it - BUT only after cleaning it out and putting in fresh mix top to bottom.
