I have an old Wing that has had old gas in the tank for 3-4 years. What do I need to do to clean it out and get it running?

I would siphon all of it out, inspect to see if there is rust in the tank.

if you find rust, I would use Electrolysis to clean it up.
several threads on doing that here and on the internet.
I have links if you need them.

once you know the tank is good, replace the fuel filter before you try to start it again.
if possible, use non-ethanol fuel.

most likely, the carbs will need to be cleaned, but just start with a clean fuel tank and new fuel filter first.
