One of the few threads where I agree with everybody !
I'd like to add two pointers, one change brake fluid,
old fluid sits, and percipates out dirt particles, which could cause
trouble next year. Converting to Silicone fluid is an ordeal, but it
does not corrode. I " always " have a car in storage [ summer car,
winter car ] and had too many brake bummers, Silicone solved the problems.
Two ! Clean the glass, I'm not kidding, cars put away with dirty
glass often have " etched " glass when revived later. Clean the inside
glass too. Do it more than once, to be sure all dirt is gone.
I favor jacking and blocking to take " some " weight off
suspension, I put on bald tires, and jack to remove about 1/2 the
weight, letting suspension dangle causes exposed shock rods to rust
Make sure car can breathe, to let out water vapor, spray oil on
parking brake cables, and shift linkage. Spray oil electrical
" snap " connectors too, loosening fan belts is smart too.
Add stabilizer before a short drive to distribute, and burn off
unstabilized gas, I put on a new fuel filter, that I squirt with
stabilizer first, this way carb gets extra stabilizer where it's needed
most, fill tank later with cans.
Occasionally turning engine with breaker bar spreads added oil in
cylinders, and keeps oil seals from sticking. Turn rear wheels to
lube rear end, and keep those seals safe.
I am opposed to the start it up, and drive it up and down driveway,
as that builds up too much moisture in exhaust.
