Will it turn over just not start or not turn over at all? Has it been sitting for a while?

Ok first thing is to get all the old gas out of it. Then I would remove the spark plugs and turn engine over a few times to blow the old gas out of cylinders. Check, clean and or replace the spark plugs. Also good idea to undo fuel line at engine and let fuel pump pump old gas out of the line. Replace fuel filter also. Condensation builds up in fuel tanks when they have set for so long. Must get it out and replace with good gas.
