Car engine oil would be fine. I'd put a socket on the flywheel and gently wind it over by hand after leaving the oil to soak for a few hours. If a ring is sticking slightly then whizzing it over by key could snap it. If you do wind it over by key don't have anyone stood behind it as they'll get splattered in oil, unless you want a laugh.

Take care not to put too much oil into the cylinders or you might hydraulic it. I wouldn't imagine there would be more that approx. 20ml space at TDC.

Given that you say it turns over ok at present and you are going to get it serviced shortly, why bother?

Nothing major-you'll get a lot of oil in the bottom of your engine cowling and the plugs will oil up when you try and start it as some will find it's way into the crankcase.

If it were mine and it was turning freely, I'd just start it up.
After giving it water, of course.

After 5 years standing it's worth oiling the bores first. Any tiny specs of rust/crap in them isn't going to do it any good being turned over at speed while dry before it starts.

'give it water' means running it on flush muffs so it doesn't frag the impeller. If you start it without water it'll kill the impeller in seconds.
