Toyota 3A Engine, start up after sitting for 10 years, prep work

The engine was out of an 1984 Toyota Tercel, the engine has sat for 10 years. I am showing in this video a start up, and some prep work on getting the engine running. This engine is carbureted, the only electronics are inside of the distributor for the ignition also the alternator has a built in regulator. There are only a couple of wires to get this engine running, these engines were said to be very reliable in there day. The video is just a very basic start up of an older engine not intended for experts.
