I know that this is a silly question, but have you installed a new battery and tried to start the engine? Also, have you checked the oil level?

The brake,s may be siezed up from setting,

2,480

try tapping the rear lugnuts, with a hammer, that might free up the rear drum brakes, so you can roll it
