Get it completely apart (remember where everything went) and soak it in
cleaning gasoline for 24 hours. For rough clening take an old
toothbrush. For the finer inside work the best thing to do is to use an
air compressor, if you don't have that possibility you can try cleaning
some of the canals in the carb with a single wire out of a brakecable or
something similar.
If it's a carb with a gasneedle it's better to replace that one and the
copper thing it slides in (help me out here guys, what's it called in
english?).
Replace the paper rings between the flutterlid and the carb and if it
leaks try a new flutter.

If you can't get something give me a sign. Everything can still be found
here.
