Local Help Starting My AMC 304

This may be a long shot but I'm hoping someone with experience with 304s and close by to me(Gales Ferry/Ledyard) can help me out with my CJ build. A little back-story.... when i bought the jeep a year ago the the engine was out of the jeep, the p/o said it was rebuilt 10 years ago and was never put back into the jeep. I'm at the stage where I have the engine in the jeep and want to start it up in the next couple weeks. I have read the Haynes manual and read through others forums but as this build is my first time doing any engine work I was hoping someone could help me out and make sure I'm not going to screw something up. Also because the engine hasn't run since the rebuild I especially don't want to mess anything up. If someone lives close by and is willing to help let me know.... thanks guys!
