I would reccomend the following in sequence:
  1. Remove the injectors - while they are out, you may want to have them serviced by a pro, or not...
  2. Crank it over (to see what comes out of the fuel tube, and the cylinder head )
  3. Change the oils (Engine & Tranny)
  4. Clean the fuel tanks (hopefully you can)
  5. Replace the air & Fuel Filters and clean the water strainer
  6. Replace the belts (note that I would NOT change the impeller, but I'd definately have a spare available)
  7. Reinstall injectors
  8. Bleed the fuel lines
  9. Fire it up
  10. Check the water flow from the exhaust
  11. enjoy
