when motors sit for a long time the best thing to do is manually turn the crank and lubricate the engine before your turn it over. not sure how that will work with a timing chained engine but on mine I just have to pull the timing belt cover off and pull the belt down a few times.

Unplug the coil connector and spin it over and let the oil circulate a little.

Considering you did it by yourself (besides getting the engine running and some help here and there) no, not really. I just thought it would be fun to point out the irony LOL
