Might not be a bad idea to wash it first.

Not directly drive-train related, but check the condition of the tires before you get sporty with it. Long periods of idleness can lead to dry rot, and won't show up until BOOM you get a blow out.

Edit: no-spark condition. Are you getting power to the coil when the ignition is on?
