"I have a 6.0 Sea King Model #VWB 52006 Ser. # 47X21167, I believe it is a 1973. It acts like it wants to start but before doing that,I would like to know the proper gas/oil mix and the recomended plug type for this neat old motor. I think that a new set of plugs and some fresh gas just might do the trick.
To eyeball it, it looks like it has had very few hours put on it. It has been sitting for five years that I know of(in a garage), is there any thing I should do before actually firing up this old beauty?
I am a newbie to outboards, so all help will be appriciated ... Lots.

Thanks"
