a4--starting the rehab

starting the process of checking out the a4. i know it turns over....
1 pull plugs
2 couple of shots tranny fluid in each cyl.
3 pull coil wire
4 old towel over top
5 bump ignition to get it movin
6 drain fuel bulb
7 wee bit tranny fluid in fuel bulb
8 bump ignition
wait 5 min, bump ignition... and hopefully then when running expect to foul plugs... replace, then kit the carb...
you have experience with the a4? does this make sense?
also, are the controls standard? the cockpit has a recessed area with two silver levers.... now one is (the shorter one/more to the inside of the boat) is all the way forward, the other is centered.... i imagine i should make sure this baby is in neutral as i do this stuff. is there a standard neutral position for these? my mech told me i would feel neutral 'lock'
