Rebuilding can be simple, too.
Given that you don't know the age or status of the spark plugs, changing them with new ones is probably a good start.
Rebuilding and cleaning the carburetor is also probably good idea.
While a complete kit is best, often a needle and a good spraying of the inside of the bowl, lid, and passages with carb cleaner are all you need to get by, if varnish is the issue and not age. Repeat several times, since the cleaner attacks the problem in layers.
