Enough testing.... fire that thing up  ;D

Lou,

If all goes well I’m hoping to fire her up over the weekend, need to wake up early tomorrow to drop our daughter at the airport for her biz trip. Maybe I can get the rest done after I get back.   ;)

Well finally got a chance to get back to putting the old girl back.

Got the heads back and torque down per specs, got the valve covers back as well to get the oil pump going. Yes, had to connect the oil filter lines before priming the oil pump.  ;)

Turn the crank by hand slowly while continue driving the oil pump to proper lubricate everything. Notice the oil getting to the hydraulic lifter so move to the next test.   8)

Compression test done to all cylinders now I’m seeing at least 20% increase on all with a range of 175 to 185 on all, now this was done with no intake manifold and all cylinders were wet from the initial installation.  :)

So “happy days are here again, I hope…!” 

Next task is to get the rest of the gears back in and do the burn in test, fingers cross hope for smoke be gone.  :D
