2007 3500 6.7 sitting for 2 years - Help

Hi from the noob,

Just inherited a 6.7 that has been sitting for 2 years. what should i do to carefully get it running again?

I assume draining fuel and cleaning lines and filters along with oil would be the start. Anything else?

These engines are not made of glass. New fuel filter, or drain the existing and check for water.
Fresh fuel, fully charged batteries and oil showing on dipstick. Giver a try. If everything runs good, treat it with an oil change.
