What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Anyone have any advice?

The car is a '73 and hasn't been run in two years.

Is there any danger in hooking up some jumpers and just cranking it a bit?

Can I just siphon out the old gas and put some new in and hope for the best? Or will there be a bunch of nasty stuff that I don't want running through the injectors, etc?
