RE: [DML] Pre-pressurizing oil before cold start:

Your way sounds easier, but the way I was taught is to remove the spark
plugs, and then pull the fuse for the fuel pump - then crank for a few
seconds, the oil pressure gauge should show pressure building just from the
crank - let it crank a few more seconds to move some oil around, replace the
plugs, wires and the fuse and your ready to try it...  but - 

Old gas, and the crud from it in the fuel tank, are going to be bigger
issues than your oil pressure though.  Hopefully its empty or near with some
fuel stabilizer?

1.  I haven't started my 83 in about six months.  I have changed the 
oil and filter, and I want to ground the spark and crank the engine for 
five or 10 seconds maximum to circulate the new oil and build up the 
oil pressure
