    First start went well, at first backfired out of the carb...rotated
    distributor 180 out and it fired right off. After this vid clip, I
    adjusted the timeing and mounted an oil gauge right to the engine
    as sender unit was bad... Turned the key and fired right off,
    proceeded to do my cam break in with no issues, temperature
    came up and held steady as did my oil pressure. Went to bed last
    night satisfied and very happy. Today I finished getting the leg
    back in place, but still have to hook up the shift cable. All in all a
    fantastic weekend, and ever so close now to getting it in the
    water!!

    Here is the link to my 1st engine start vid :dance:

    Looking forward to it , not to much longer now that it runs, and
    the leg is back in place.... have to hook up the shift cable, and
    trouble shoot some electrical, If the week goes exceptionally well I
    could get the boat wet this weekend if not then next weekend for
    sure :dance:

    remember Dell, the best advice I was given when I started this
    project was to "take as long as needed to do the job right" . I am
    not done yet, but really really close....will be pulling the lower
    section of the leg off to change the impeller before I fire it off
    again, as well as the shift cable still needs hooked back up the the
    transome plate.

    Regards,

    Will R.
