Mine has been in my shed sitting for years, and I haven't started it in at least 5 years probably longer.
Unfortunately there was gas in the tank.
The engine is rebuilt and so is the carb.

Plan of attack.
1)Clean the tank. I have a good spare if needed.
2) New fuel filter I was using after market.
3) order a carb kit, take off and clean the carb.
4) New fuel line if necessary.
5) I'm thinking about taking no chances and pulling the head.
6) new plug.?
7 Almost certainly going to need a new battery.
8) oil change.

Am I forgetting anything.?
Thoughts ?

Sounds like you have a good plan. Take it one step at a time and see how it goes, you may get lucky.

The inside should not be rusty if it is NOS, it should have gas-resistant paint from the factory. They just get monked-up (technical term) after years of gasoline/ethanol abuse.

Thanks, I went out and checked it. The gas has evaporated. Inside of the tank is perfect.

I think it's going to be awhile before I can get to work on my 70.
My other tractor's seem to be in a perpetual state of break down.
