So I'm about to move out of the country for an extended period, six months to two years. Not that she's in the greatest condition these days anyway, but what all should I do to 617 before I leave?

Hopefully you have a place to keep it out of the weather. That's the most important thing.

The other big things are tires flat spotting and rat damage. If there is any possibility at all of rat damage, get some of the poison rat traps and set up in or near the wheels.

It would be good if you could block it up and get the weight off the tires. The next best thing is to inflate them to about 45 PSI before storage.

Good luck in your travels.

Drain the fuel to prevent algae and condensation in the tank. Unhook the battery or hook it up to a trickle charger.
