Wired up and running....

Got the engine, fans, dash, etc. wired up...SO,we ran the engine for about 1/2 hour tonight. Bled the power steering/hydroboost. It ran well. Couldn't get to 160 degreees with both fans running....160* on the dot with one fan on. Smoked the fan controller gotta find out why tomorrow. I think it was defective. Big news: NO LEAKS !!!!!

Gosh E, that engine just looks incredible.

Is that a preluber on the firewall? I wish you had bigger pics so I could go over the details better. All that red anodizing with the polished components just looks so freakin AWSOME.

How about a complete parts list for us droolers? Some details on the fuel system, carbs etc. Please?

Sooooooo Niiiiiicccceeee!
