Check all battery connections. Also check the negative connections on the frame and motor. Check starter siliniod for 12 volts when key is in the start position. Might try taking all the spark plugs out and then try to turn engine over with starter. Try turning engine over by hand. Put a wrench on harmonic balancer nut and see if it will turn some then. Also inspect belts. After having set for such a long time might have a couple trying to seize to the pulleys.
