Unless you are going to start it and run it long enough at operating temperature to get rid of the condensation in the engine, you will be doing more harm than good by starting it. In most cases it is better to park it in the fall and leave it alone until spring. If it is going to be outside covered up. I would seal up the carb, breathers etc to keep moisture rodents, etc out. Drain the fuel out and run the carb dry. Check or change the antifreeze and change the oil if it is due.
