I'd prime the oil system by removing the dissy and spinning the oil pump drive then wind it over with the spark plugs removed by hand so you dont snap any rings. Then you should be able to start it.

Re: 351 C Sitting Around

you may also want to pull the carby off and give it a good clean and replace the gaskets.
