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.
