Starting an old 283 chevy engine part 1

My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5 years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in it.

Tearing Down an Original Chevy 283 (in One Minute)
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- A full engine teardown is boring, but now when it's all squeezed into a minute! This video is mostly just for fun. The engine is a 283 out of a '57 Chevy, and I think it will eventually make a great little motor for a roadster. The car had been sitting in a field for nearly 20 years, so I knew it would be in rough shape, but the squirrel's nest in the lifter valley was a bit of a surprise--don't blink or you'll miss it. If you are interested in 283s in general, make sure to check out the additional information in my website at the link below.

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every 1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes, but we will take care of that at a later date.
