    Welcome to GH!
    thats a good start. use BR8ES for the plugs. get a rebuild kit for the carbs. drain the fuel tank. you may also want to change the pump oil. its in the little cone on the inside of the steering nozzle. standard gear oil works fine. post some pix of the ol girl!

    Also a good time to replace your oil filter, check the condition of your oil lines, replace fuel filter. I'm sure you'll read it here, but replacing the grey (if eqipped) fuel lines would be a great idea.

    everything that you need is right here. dealers tend to add thier mark up. look at the top left side of the links tab. there is a tab that says order OEM parts. also if you want to buy used there are a bunch of people that have parts laying around.

    the fill hole is cocked to the side so you cant over fill it. I used 80W90. as for the fuel line you need about 25ft of 1/4"
