makes good oxygen barrier stop the oxidization of the metals
get as much coolant out of the engine as you can, then plug up the pump housing inlet/outlet with rags, same with the air intake & exhast - stops bugs making nests in them.
try and connect the gearbox/engine together, makes it a lot easier to manouver around with 2/3 people (believe me)
i spose you should have flushed the engine oil out with a kerosene based cleaner before you stored it (then replace with a clean oil)... dont know if you knew that before you take it out and store it... i was just told that it stops the gunk solidifying down onto the sump...
put a sachet of water absorbing chrystals in the distributer if you plan to store it in a cool/dampish area
i cant think of much else to do... thats what ive done with mine neway
which now ive stuck on EBAY if anyone is desperate for bits for a EA-81 engine

A couple of teaspoons of oil in each combustion chamber.
Drain the gas, too!
