Hey boot, sounds great. I know you've been waiting for this for a while. If you decide to run on the delaware river, let me know. I could meet you down there some weekend. Can't wait to see her run!!!

OH YES ! HAd the one all together and running ! What a great feeling !
Then I had to take the blower off ,rocker arms , and retorque the heads .... Then I remebered a posible oversight . I have spacer plates between the intake manifold and the head due to it being a tall deck . I had extra bolts laying there and had to take the intake off to see if I missed some ! I didn't . It was worth it to know . There goes another set of gaskets ! And more time !
By the time I got done playing with all that I didn't get to finish the other like I wanted to . A little too tired to think ! Oh well . Start again tomorrow !

Motor #2 is alive and well !!!
Lesson learned for today ,

1- Don't let people help !

2- NEVER LET PEOPLE HELP !

3- Make sure ALL the intake gaskets are in
before finishing engine !

4-REVERSE ROTATION engine means something !!
things are different ! (spark plug wiring )

5- when starting engine with plug wires wrong ,don't
put your ass too close to the open header !!
(large flames)!

6- there is nothing like a large blown motor running inside
a garage with open headers ( car headers ) !!

going away for a couple days now ...... Hope to be putting them in next thursday . Wish me luck ! I'll need it
