can you manually turn the engine, would check the gas tank too and make sure there is nothing in there....

Replace all fluids. Prime the oil system. Flush the fuel system. Rebuild the carb. Replace the filters. Turn the engine by hand with a bit of oil in each cylinder. Verify the brakes work. Have fire extinguisher handy when attempting to start. I would block the wheels in both directions too.
