If it sat open and exposed to the air for years then I'd suspect the delivery valve as the most likely culprit. Probably dried out and formed a ring of rust and/or sediment that's preventing it from seating. Pull the #3 DV holder and pull the DV and take a look. If that's all it is, you can probably just polish the seating faces and be back in business.
