x2 - take the belt off and see if it's the same. If so pull the spark plugs and see if one is smashed - if so you found your blown piston...

My guess is something spark or fuel related is keeping most of the cylinders from running. If it ran fine before putting away, its probably not a chucked piston, just something from sitting. Could have been a bit seized and bent some push-rods trying to get going again. Just needs a bit of a pull apart to see whats goin on.

excellent suggestions karma. There is a lot to investigate before replacing the engine.
