Been sittin maybe 8-10+ yrs at Wisconsin huh? Look for piston rings rusted solid in their grooves when you pull the cyl head. Hells bells, rings might even have rusted their way into the bores themselves probly pitted. Condensation over time from inside out kills plenty of engines. Thats why you gotta laugh at sellers handing out bull***** like "it ran excellent when parked (12-20 yrs ago)."
