If those batteries, like the engine, have been sitting around for a few years, they probably aren't going to hold much of a charge now. Batteries generally don't tolerate sitting uncharged.

Re: 1967 Volvo Penta?

More than likely that the engine will run just fine, those old Volvos seem to last forever. The transmissions also last a long time but sooner or later the clutch cone wears out and parts are not available any longer. My father replaced his 1970 Volvo for that reason, the engine ran fine but the trans. failed.

The motor hasn't been turned over for four years.
WD40 provides almost no lubrication, it is designed for displacing moisture. The WD means Water Displacement. I would certainly not want to rely on the extremely thin film WD40 leaves. I only use it as a cleaner. There are lots of good penetrating oils out there, WD40 is not one.
