    Default Motor hasn't been run in years. What to do first?

    Hello All,
    I am new here. I am helping a friend restore a 1973 Oday 2+2 Mariner Sailboat.
    The boat came with a Mercury 6.0 2-Stroke Outboard Engine. This motor has not been run in at least 4 to 6 years. The motor is not as old as the boat. I would estimate that it was bought in the late 80's maybe early 90's.
    What sort of maintenace should I do to the motor before trying to crank it.
    Any advice would be great!
    Thanks
