A clean enrichener is essential to get it started easily. A 5 mile run Is needed to warm the engine up with a standard No40 pilot, the usual dodge is to swap it for a 42. Tired or torn diaphrams main and enrichener are not unknown. 5 years without running shouldn't be a problem, one member recently reported starting an engine after a 12 year lay off
