Any one know about old snowmobiles?

Okay guys I just purchased a 76 (I think) el tigre for a guy that said it ran, well we unloaded it and took a good 15 minutes of pulling and eventually some starting fluid to get it started and it ran okay wouldn't idle and would just die and didn't feel like it was going all out, now I can't get it to start at all. I replaced the spark plugs and dropped the carb bowel and cleaned all inside there, then I pulled the fuel pump (I think) apart and took some break clean to it could I possibly not have put the pump in the right way? Also right before it stopped running it started to sound more like a 4 stroke and wouldn't go over like 15 max

Yea i just need to see the design

Drop bowl and there are 2 jets, pilot and main
- pull both jets and check to see if clogged
-if you cant see through take carb cleaner and blow it out
- take a bread tie, strip the plastic to get down to metal and feed through the jets and make sure they are clean
-spray more carb cleaner through them
-put back in carb

Pretty easy. I know last year my brother decided to run his sled out of gas so it wouldnt go bad in the carbs, but didnt realize it will still pump oil when the pet**** is off. Jammed the carbs up bad. So that could be a possibility if its oil injected that is.
