Engine Performance problem
1989 Dodge Truck V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 78000 miles
We have received a RV with a dodge truck front, which has 440 V8 Engine.
Problem: The RV has not been run in over ten years, and has been in the back of my wife's father house. It' just been in the backyard all this time.
We had it pulled to our house, and I have done some work on the RV part of it.
Question: How do I turn over manually, or initially start this V8 motor, which has not been running in ~ 10 years or so, " without hurting the internal parts, and causing some damage".
I've been told not to do a " hard start" of the vehicle.
What steps should I intially take, before attempting to start the engine after all of this time?
