Hi guys Im not sure how to tackle this. ive got a 18 hp motor that has been sitting on a stand since 2003, when we moved from oregon to colorado I didn't have a boat anymore and it's been in my storage all these yrs. It ran perfect when last used and I'm just wondering if there are any precautions I should take before trying to get it going.Will the seals and gaskets be all dried out etc...

Fact----If the carburetor was empty 16 years ago it will be clean.-----If spark still jumps a gap of 1/4" on both leads the motor is ready to run.---Check / change oil in the lower unit.---Once you have it fired up and running you will need to replace the impeller for cooling system.----Just a great motor.
