Before anything else check for play in the main bearings. Bikes which have been sitting for a long while often suffer from internal corrosion, which will mean bearings will fail pretty quickly, and lead to crankcase air leaks. Modern fully synthetic pre-mix only 2T oils are what is used by those racing classic air cooled race bikes, so no real reason not to use at 50:1 on your TS. If the bearings check out ok, then carefully clean carb with brake cleaner and air line, fit a new spark plug, cap and lead, and try it again.
