Post Ford pinto

I tore down a 289 HO for my pinto the motor sat for 20 years before I got it.It supposedly only had 4000 miles on the engine when parked.I pulled heads intake oil pan,everything looked brand new so I put it back together and just replaced the gaskets, distributor and plugs.The reason for tearing it down in the first place was because a piece of dis. gear broke off and motor locked up, but it didnt scar anything.when I try to start it,it just backfires out the exhaust,my timing should be right but could it be stuck valves,if so whats a quick fix if any.helps greatly appreciated because if my girlfriend has her baby before its started the car goes down the road ,babys are expensive.

How did the piece of gear lock the motor? Where did it lodge?

What was the oil pressure when you pre-lubed it?

Sounds like you need to start with either a compression or leak down test.
