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.

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.
