Default Carb problem?

Hey guys, my truck was sitting in a garage for about a year, so I try and start it with no luck, it seems that there is no gas getting through, If I recall I remember pluging the exaust pipe with my finger and the fuel would leak out of there, now everything is dry
all hoses are clear, seems like the carb isn't sucking the fuel in or something, any ideas?

dump alittle fuel in the neck of the carb and see if she fires up. If she fires up then the inlet is blocked. If Iknow that a nitro motor has been sitting for awhile I tear down the carb and clean it, just incase the fuel has gummed up.

pull the hose off the exhaust pipe and blow into it, this forces fuel through the HSN, cleaning the carb out. Seems to work for me.
