If it's been sitting for 5 years, then it's likely the passageways in the carby are partially blocked by oxidation and/or varnish and crud, even if they look clean to the eye on first inspection.
A full strip down and soak in cleaner will do it wonders.
Same for the vacuum tap, maybe even more so. Fuel evaporates and leaves really stubborn varnishes.
Every ride's an adventure if you can't ride for crap
