I just helped a friend with a simular situation. We pulled all of the plugs, squirted Marvel Mystery Oil in each cyl. then turned the engine over by hand 1/4 of a turn and let it sit for several hours. repeated this until two full turns had been done.
Then we brought it up to #1 top dead center and removed the distributor and ran a (home made, old distributor housing and distributor shaft) pre-oiler on a drill until we had good oil pressure.
Then we put it all back together and with fresh gas in the carb we fired it up. it started right up (smoked alittle, which cleared after a couple of minutes) and once it was warm we tuned it and now it runs great. He drives it everyday.
