if it sat for 5 years the mice have invaded it , they like to chew on wires , and the gas is no good , plus there's a reason it didn't run and was left sitting ,


motor turns, would start with the basics, pull a plug and look at the condition, then check the ignition timing, then fuel~ the three necessary means to start~ would not just guess Mice~ but look at the physical condition of all components~ perhaps the timing belt is busted, one must look at the physical condition~
