remove the bolts around the bellhousing. the two lower ones by the axle are the most annoying, they're nuts actually. remove starter.
torque converter bolts are accessed through the tiny window under the throttle body. remove the rubber plug (if it's still there) and keep rotating the engine to remove the torque conveter bolts one at a time).

the older ones you could prime the pump, the newer ones you can't quite do it the same as the oil pump is connected to the crank so the engine has to turn over to move oil. and not sure how to lube the cylinder walls since being horizontal you can't add oil to the cylinder...well you can but it would only lube the bottom half.
i'd probably start a separate thread for that given that the engine has sat for a very long time and it's going for a first start up.
i'd crank the engine over by hand a bit then crank i over the the starter with the fuel lines disconnected so as to get oil circulating first. but might be another step to do before that on an engine with unknown cylinder wall/oil conditions.
