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?

77,425

The brake,s may be siezed up from setting,

2,650

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