Oil change, plugs and wires, flushing out the cooling system, fr fresh fuel, may need to clean-out the fuel system if it sat with gas in it.

I always pour transmission fluid in the oil the night before. Turn the crank with a wrench a bit before you start it. Give it some fresh fuel and let er run for a bit. Sea foam the intake, add the rest to your gas, then do as TripleJ said. I had a Chevy truck set in a field for at least 7 years and now I drive it a few times a week to haul horses/hay/building materials.

i was thinkin that myself...some people i have talked to said to just put the fly wheel on keep the tranny off and leave the rest together then disconnect your fuel lines and route it to a gas can straight from the fuel pump and try to fire it first and let it run for a few min and then start replacing.. what u all think of that??

I drain a couple quarts of oil and replace it with a couple quarts of transmission fluid poured in the valve cover. Then right away (while the fluid is still moving down) start turning the crank clockwise (viewed from the front). After letting it sit over night, start it and let it run with the transmission fluid for about 15-20 minutes. Watch your temperature though. The transmission fluid will help clean it all out. When you change the oil, you will see how much it did.
