That sounds great, the big concern is the cam bearings as michael said in his post. As far as gas, you can just thump the tank and you should be able to tell if it's empty. Any gas in there is probably bad and it would be best if you dumped it out. But if there is not very much you could just add some and be alright. Just make sure you have a filter on the tank side of the fuel pump! Keep in mind how old this gas tank is they rust inside if not used for length time.
You could also disconect the line at the fuel pump and stick it in a bucket, then have someone stick an air hose in the filler neck and seal with a rag and apply "some" pressure, not alot, and force the gas out the line in the bucket, if the is any.
Good luck
