Make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Check for trouble codes?

How much are you looking for to sale it.

Put a good battery, throw gas I n the tank 10 bucks or 5. Toss some gas in the carb a splash in each barrel. Start her. If she's sputtering and the carb is coughing your spark plugs must be crossed. The spark plugs wire diagram for Sbc is different then oldsmobile. Get a new fuel pump if it has oil and residue all over it. You should be good or you have serious er problems
