Like most say, pull the plugs, squirt in a small shot of light oil, like Marvel Mystery Oil, and rotate by hand. If she feels fine, pull valve cover, pour some oil over the rockers and into push rod holes. If oil looks clean on dip stick, and you have room to get a drill, with a socket that fits the crank pulley, you can spin the engine around, and possibly build some oil pressure. At that point, put clean plugs back in, check and gap points, fill the carb bowls with fresh gas, spritz some in the carb mouth, and fire her up. She will run for a few minutes on the new gas, and if all seems OK, drain the old gas, clean the tank and fuel lines, change the oil and coolant, and coolant hoses, and she's ready for the 21st Century!
