Funny thing. I checked the weather forecast yesterday and it looked OK for today. I had my oldest in the garage helping prep the engine to try firing it up again. We were just ready to push the car outside and it started to rain. Checked my phone and it looks like it's supposed to rain for the next 4 hours or so. Washed out again. Tomorrow looks clear so prime the oil pump again and try then.Definetly take your time
, double check oil etc. By the way you are using break in oil? If you want to be absolutley sure where your tdc is...use a piston stop. There are youtube videosto help. Not really neccesary to start it but when you do your total timing it will be more accurate. Then check to make sure you got spark at the end of your spark plug wire and have fuel in the carb. Spark, fuel & timing = 🚀
I had the valve covers off and had my son hold a finger over the #1 plug hole. Both say that I am now at TDC.
