Post priming for 1st start w/new gas tank required?

After over a year swapping frames, my new engine is ready to fire. it's never seen gas, nor has the fuel pump or gas tank. Any special "must do's" before I crank the dog crap out of it getting gas to the carb? Holley carb has been sitting empty for the whole time, and I think the gaskets are probably dry-does that matter? Seems like I remember somebody back in the 70's saying to store the carb in a bucket of gas. but for a whole year that's kinda not gonna happen.
