I was in a prediciment last year losing my tractor storage. I figured I'd build as big of a "garden shed" as the city we live in would allow me to build in our back yard which ended up being 16' x 24' which was originally intended to be simply cold storage; a roof over their head.
Well, as my building projects tend to go and with help of some of my family and friends with more skill then I do, one thing led to another and am currently making the shed into the tractor museum I've always dreamed up, but on a smaller scale.

This is how my son stores his tractor along side is his push mower uncover no winterizing just park them and let nature take its course I was there today and my wife told me to try starting it Pullrd the choke a little throttle it crank a little then fired off ran fine Now it that was mine all the connections would be bad gas like varnish dead battery and anything else you could think of
I have a buddy like that, he has a collection of about 25 Sears, a bunch of cubs, leaves them all outside. Other than a battery and checking the oil, he usually can go out and fire them right up after winter. He started up the 64 Sears DB725 I bought from him after not being started for a year and a half after about 5 pulls.
Like you, Mine are all under cover or in the barn, winterized, they fight me tooth and nail!
