IT RUNS!

buttoned up the wiring, and vac. routing. painted and reinstalled the IC plumbing, filled engine and trans with oil. water in rad. bolted up the DP, and fired it off. once all the lifters pumped back up, she purred like a kitten.

few things to finish up; bleed brakes, bleed clutch, reassemble front end, hangers for muffler, gauge panel.

hope to take it for a spin tomorrow, but for now, here is a shot of the completed engine bay!
