Fixed the timing problem and subsequent wiring problem, and then this is what happened:

Not a knock or a ping or a rattle or a taptaptap. It sounds like a beast!! I ran her for 15 minutes at 1500 - 2000 RPM, shut her down, and then shot this short video.

Next, should I drain and change the oil and filter, or take her around the block for a spin? And then what? I never opened the throttle more than 1/4 of the way and it sounds like a dragster. A year and a half since she was last started. Boy am I HAPPY!!! It runs GREAT!!!

Doc let me be the first to congratulate you I thought you were building one of those vacuum cleaner type drivers. It sounds fantastic, after you check all your fluid levels bolts, belts etc. take it for a spin. The breakin procedure should be lots of different rpm ranges dont drive it 350 miles at 2000 rpm. I usually will give up to 3/4 throttle the first 100 miles after that give it some more, at 200 give her hell! Change the break in oil at 50-100 miles it will be ready then. Great job!!!Wink

Crap...427heaven beat me to it....but he does have a 427...

Outstanding....I am so envious.

The only thing is, I would have waited until up 3am to open her to make sure the neighbors knew I just finished my new motor.
