    Finished rebuilding my carb last night, mounted it on the engine
    this morning then fixed my leaking lifter cover. Hooked up the
    battery, turned on the fuel...turned the key and had some light
    backfiring out of the carb. Rotated the distributor 180, and it
    started :dance: was a bit rough, adjusted the distributor, and it
    fired right up but saw no oil pressure. Guessing the wiring to the
    gauge or the sender.... hooking up a gauge right to the block in a
    few mins, and will fire it up again. If I have good oil pressure, then
    I will complete the cam break in. I will have video of it up later if it
    recorded right.

    Ecstatic,

    Will

    Congrats....

    For those not used to firing a fresh engine, it can be a nerve
    racking experience...
Working...
