I tired that whole, add oil and go thing with my 1966 CJ5 and it didn't go so well. I've replaced every seal under it (and it still leaks a little gear oil) and I'm working on the seals in the engine (leaks gas on occasion, valve covers leak, water pump etc.)... still love it though. Working on a project rig is a lot more fun than working on something you NEED to have running.
