1984 911 3.2 Cranking but won't start

I'm new here, so hope this is in the appropriate place. This car has been stored, not driven since 1999. Recently put in new Battery, fuel and started right up, but smoked like crazy from all over/around the engine. Shut it down and was talking to my wife about it and she reminded me that she drove it last (10 yrs ago) and put oil in the gas tank. I drained/cleaned tank, flushed fuel line-also used fuel stabilizer, changed filter, new plugs. Now, car cranks and seems like it wants to catch for-about 3-5 seconds, but doesn't completely turn over. Any suggestions? I usually do most (about 90%) of my own vehicle work, so I feel I am able to handle this without going to technician, I hope! Thanks for your input and patience.
