Yes, it probably should start. I have one that hadn't been run in over 15 years and it started the within the first twenty revolutions of the motor. (It had been in a barn all that time). The one thing I would do is to take a point file with you and a couple of fresh spark plugs, I use the (cheap) Champion D-16's. And by all means make sure it has oil in it. You check the oil by removing a plug that is just forward of the clutch, and ideally, add oil until it starts to run out of the hole with the plug removed, then replace the plug. Also, if possible, turn off the hydraulic pump if you don't have it full of hydraulic fluid, to protect the pump. It is usually done by finding the pump that is on the left side above the flywheel, and rotating the indicator to the "off" position. Any questions, email me, the email is "on". Good luck, Hugh

Thanks for the info, Hugh. I'll try your suggestions and hopefully she'll run. I hear that gasahol can really mess with the carb. Any precautions to take there?
