Advice please?

new battery
clean the plugs up a bit
ensure nothing living in the induction system then see if she goes?

its got oil in it
and old fuel

worth sticking a RedEX or similar down its neck to give the fuel its zing back?

Yep youve got most of it me personally, i drop bout a tablespoon of fresh oil down the bores and let it sit for a day or two, then ya know the rings and bores have got the best protection from damage. Sorry replys like a month late

I'd do all that but put new fuel n oil filter on, New fuel in n manually turn cranked after you've lubed it a few turns, 90 per cent of engine wear is when ur engine is cold n been stood, 10 years! That fuel could damage injectors or carb n clog up the jets

true, true, depends how keen you are i mean it wouldnt hurt to do a full service, belts, fuel filter, etc etc, but you could go to all that effort on anengine thats thrown a ring (or simular) No

eithter way its lucky dip on an engine that aint been ran for that long Suspect
