Charge the battery and give it a try. I would suggest that you turn it over with the plugs removed for about 30 seconds before you refit the plugs and try and fire it up. This will circulate oil round the cold engine and reduce the chance of wear on start up, as the internals will be dry. Once started you may like to do a complete minor service (oil, filters and check the brake fluid levels.)

92 Camaro RS Stoped in driveway hasn't started since.Itb is definetly a fuel problem .Pump is not running. Checked relay Ok. Took voltage reading at plug to pump,femal side, only showing 9 volts....

It sounds like there is a problem with the power wire. It could just be a bad connection but more likely it's corrosion or a broken end at one of the plug-ins. It could also be the insulation rubbed off somewhere along the way. It's probably easiest to run a new wire from the relay back to the plug-in. Hope this helps.

Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.

If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..
