Default Starting an 83 for the first time in 20 years

Hi All,

Helping my neighbor get his 12a started for the first time in 20 years. My plan is:

Pull fuel lines, pull gas tank, drain and inspect gas tank, drain oil, new oil filter, replace oil, new fuel lines, new spark plugs, crank with no gas to build oil pressure, then try to start.

I have no experience with wankels but have been working on old BMWs for 20 years so mechanically shouldn't have a problem. What kind of special rotary and or rx7 issues to I have to be aware of if any?

Thanks all for the help!
