LA115 John Deere Lawn Tractor Will Not Start

I am 99% sure the cause is old gas due to my mother never servicing it. The LA115 is currently at 299 hours. It started and ran prior to the old gas running out. After refueling with new clean fuel it still would not start. I tried starter fluid in the tube next to air filter (which was surprisingly clean) and still no start. Next I changed the plug which was seriously rusted and obviously old, still only cranks, but does not catch. What should be the next logical step - clean/replace carb? Or how do I clean any residual bad gunk out of the engine?

The carburetor could get gummed up. This is the next step.
