A big day has finally arrived! I have been doing a little work as time allows, filling with fluids and fixing leaks. I pinched the gasket in the water neck when the thermostat slid down on installation. New gasket and hold t-stat in place, bolt back up, leak stopped. Now a little side story I gave a friend a very nice 2a frame that I acquired and repaired for him, he's swapping from a hacked up early 5 frame that was under his 2a. He told me he wasn't going to put new gaskets in his 18, I told him that would be fine if he didn't care how much it leaked. Then I carefully filled my t-case/overdrive and realized I hadn't even put a pan gasket on it! Now on to the good stuff, I still don't have the fuel tank in, but I do have a charged battery and was checking the wiring and decided to try and start it. I hooked up a couple battery cables (temp's) poured a little gas down the carb. and hit the key. By some miracle It fired right off I have fought and fought with the HEI and was sure it was in the right tooth but I wasn't ready for it to start,I didn't even have the cap latched yet. So here is the second try I dropped the hose in my fuel can and hit the key. (Crossing fingers for luck) If the video works, the first try is without the key on, I forgot it! I'm using a remote, you can hear the fan motor come on when I turn on the ignition. Sorry about the T-rex! CLICK PIC I was so delighted I threw the air cleaner on and tried it again. Sorry about the Rush. CLICK AGAIN My timing light is broken so I can't do any final tune yet, but it lives.
