MF 35 Deluxe and Fuel Starvation

Neil Have a 35 deluxe that had been sitting for several years. Old fuel had gummed up and varnished. Rebuilt carb and cleaned everything I can think of that is fuel related. The tractor starts, and runs great for about 3 to 5 seconds and then acts like it is starved for fuel, coughs and carries on. Can let is set and it will do the same thing for a few seconds. Float and needle valve look right. Any thoughts on what I should check next. Think I have tried them all but I'm running out of ideas.
GEEBEE Possibly some kind of blockage between tank and carb ? Did you check for good fuel flow to carb ?
Do you have the small filter in the tank above the shut-off ?

Neil Thanks for the reply. I believe I cleaned the line adequately but I have not verified the flow to the carb. About the only thing I haven't checked. No filter in the tank.
