We Have Oil Pressure!!!!!

Finally spun it over with the starter instead of by hand tonight!!!! It has super oil pressure and lots of compression... Now I am waiting on my wires and the x-cal 2 to come in, then its off to the race track(just kidding). I have uploaded more pix on the SITE with the charger and almost everything else hooked up.... Lemme know what you think...

Ha ha! Getting something you've built running, whatever it is, can be a real "high" for many of us -- me included!

Good luck and keep up the good work!

Thank you!!! I think the best thing about running a new engine is the smell. Nothing beats the smell of a freshly painted, new engine... I would like to see what it will do too
