Default First top end rebuild

I just finished reassembly on my first top end rebuild and I am ready to fire it up. Any advice on things to double check before I do so. It is pretty nerve racking wondering if all the time and money I have into this is going to pan out.

I would make sure it will turn over by hand before I put fire to it. I assume you know but if you don't, plugs out, in 5th gear rotate the rear tire and listen for noise. If none the turn the key.
