Welcome to the forum Roger.
If it sat drained of fluids for a long time you should strongly consider priming the oil pump by hand. You remove the distributor, carefully marking the position of the rotor and the position of the distributor stem relative to the block.
Now you insert a readily available hex shaft into the drive for the oil pump, available through the vacated opening in the block. Secure the shaft in the chuck of a drill and turn it on. This will drive the impeller of the oil pump, pressurizing the system. Reinstall the distributor and fire it up.
Most engine wear occurs on start-up. On a well used car its not a problem. On drained museum cars it is.
