Re: 164 cloverleaf help needed
change the oil and filter, the oil will be quite acidic by now.
take off the valve covers and lubricate the cams. Also remove the plugs and put some oil in the cilinders. turn the crank by hand (spanner on crankshaft pulley) a few turns to prime the pump.
check if the clutch wants to come loose, it might be rusted solid to the flywheel. Make sure the brakes aren't rusted solid either, especially if you had the handbrake applied.
put some fresh fuel in also, the octane rating will have gone down quite a bit, and drive low rpm's until it's fully on fresh fuel.
also check if you didn't get mice eating through your airfilter. They love stationary cars...
That's about it, I reckon...
