Disconnect the ingnition wire from the coil pack, then crank it over
a few times so the oil will get pumped through the engine.
Then hook the wire back up, and fire it up.

Well one thing is did you put any stabilizer in the gas before you stored the car? If not, after 6 months I would drop the tank and clean out all the sludge that has collected before you run the thing and get more sludge in the fuel line and filter.

I wouldnt worry about the start up, just check the oil level first before ya start it up. Putting oil in the cylinders would be okay, but will cause alot of smoke and is just something I wouldnt worry about doing.

There won't be any sludge in the tank in just 6 months.
A year maybe.

And putting oil in the cyls will smoke and build up on the cat and shorten it's lifespan.

Don't let your car sit for that long next time! it's bad enough to let
it sit for a week.
