Havent started the 86 FJ60 2F motor in months and will be planning to have it running within a month or two. I replaced gaskets and all seals but did not rebuild. Before starting, do I need to turn the oil pump with a bit of some type, or do I need to put some oil in the cylinders to help with initial lubrication? Thanks.

just start it up and drive it, it will make oil pressure as soon as you crank it with the starter
And you would have to reset your ignition timing from taking the distributor out.

Thanks for your help! You are all so fast to help. Essential for a guy like me who doesn't know what he doesn't know.

You're prolly ok, but it wouldn't hurt to squirt a little Marvel Mystery Oil (or other light oil) in each cylinder the night before start up. I would if you've stored the engine with the int/exh ports open like the pix show in your other manifold bolt thread. But I'm anal.
