i am replacing my motor which jumped time with a used motor from a local used auto parts yard. I have replaced the timing belt, pulleys, water pump and cps. i also poured a few cap fulls of oil in each cylinder. it seems to have been sitting for a while. The yard said they test run all motors before pulling and it came with 30 day warranty. is there anything else i should do before installing and changing the oil for first start. i will be hand turning of course when finishing timing belt procedure. i don't know much about these hyundai motors.

I would disconnect the fuel pump and let the engine crank for 30-40 seceonds without starting. This way you get oil circulated everywhere. Then connect the fuel pump and fire her up. You did not say, but I assume you're changing all the spark plugs too as you have the engine out?
