Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. first of all was this stored properly with fuel stabilizer in the tank and run , fogging engine or at least putting oil in cylinders? do you have spark at the spark plugs?,the gas may have got skunk y and stale. lest treat it for bad gas and install two cans of stp gas treatment with octane the fuel tank with fresh fuel. then pull the spark plugs and make sure there is spark there. add about two to three squirts of clean engine oil in each cylinder and new spark plugs. try that . Hope this helps your situation and if you need further assistance I'll be happy to do so.

Drove it to a spot and parked it.

then I'll assume it was not stored properly and you should do what I mentioned and try that.

this is usually what happens when you do that with any engine, the gas gets stale and don't want to fire ,it varnishes the fuel system compression drops because rings don't seal properly and spark plugs foul . I f you require further assistance I''l do so.
