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.
