change the oil. Take the distributor off and spin the gear to start some oil flowing before starting it. Drain your old gas and put new gas in.

If you run high compression you should change the gas.  Be a bad thing if you got detonation from old low octane gas.  If you run 9 or 9.5:1 I don't think there would be an issue if it was filled with 91 octane gas 4 months ago.
