Pulled Dist and valve covers back off, and hooked up oil pressure gauge to engine. Ran drill to oil pump and got 65-70 PSI and ran till oil came up through all push rods. Made appointment with my oldest son to help me install on Sat. and running by Sun. Tongue

Cool Alan, It'll be good to hear it run. Building your own engine is very rewarding.
