Hey guys, long story short I used to use my boat multiple times a week then came marriage and a child. I haven't used it since 2016ish. I want to get it up and running again but wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on the maintenance things to do. It's a 1977 35hp Johnson. I used to do all the work on it so am very familiar with it just rusty! So far I am replacing water pump, rebuilding my carb and getting a new battery. I am thinking I should also replace the lower unit oil and get new plugs?? Anything else guys!!?? Thanks!

replace the fuel pump diaphragm. maybe a little lubricant on top of the pistons and in the intake then crank it over a few times with plugs out
