Is there a way to hook up to a remote tank. Even if you put fresh gas in, what was in the tank before?
Also being a project boat I bet it has sat with older fuel lines and bulb. Buy new ones. Checking filter is a good start as you mentioned.

Jets in carbs of small 2 stroke outboards are tiny, it does not take much to clog.
