Hey everybody, new to the outboard seen so need some tips. My dad and I recently bought this boat the friend whom we bought it from hasn't put it in water or possibly started in 3 or so years. It was cleaned with tooth picks and winterized every year. Now since it hasnt ran in god knows how long what should i do before starting it up? I figure atleast clean carb, change plugs clean gas tanks, new battery, and I'm hearing I should spray a penetrating oil in each cylinder from spark plug holes? The guys said this will prevent any rings from snapping. I definetly need advice on that idea!
Hopefully someone can help. Thanks.
