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.

Old marine engine, first start since?
This is a old 2 stroke 2 cylinder marine engine from around 1920's, no manufacturers name or any ID on it. After fixing the magneto (Ruthardt) I got it running. In this first run we had motor oil in the crankcase, because we thougt it wouldn't use the 2-stroke oil and would need oil in the crackcase. That was not the case as you can see. The oil burns and flies from the Exhaust. It will still need a little adjusting of the carburetor (Schebler) to run beautifully.

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.
