Do not reuse the tank. Change out the tank and fuel lines. The tank will be lined with shellac. New gas will dissolve it and it will cause stuck valves and bent push rods at the minimum. I have destroyed 2 390s by failing to take this advice.
I second this sage advice. Tank, lines and I'd even go so far as a carb rebuild.

So what these guys said before, anything that deals with fuel replace it! Sitting that long its all dead, its all cheap and easy to do with the hardest being rebuilding the carb but thats even not too bad.

She does appear to be in great shape! It wont take much to get back on the road and doing burnouts in short order
