Default Using a motor that has been sitting 8 years

Since I blew my 383 sbc i am thinking about putting my old motor back in it been sitting for over 8 years. Do you thing this motor would be ok? The oil psi was good when I pulled it but it has not been turned in several years. If it's not stuck should I do anything other than the basic tune up and prime the oil pump? The motor is a mild 454 I will probably change the valve spring as well.
