    well guys - got the bugs worked out it seems... not more oil leaks, and there are no coolant leaks, or fuel leaks (replaced a LOT of the high pressure fuel line to replace the rubbder & hose clamps somebody put in there), finished the cam break in, and got it timed.

    thing seems to idle / run very smooth (which makes me a very happy man)

    no I can put the newly painted body parts back on, and then paint the rest on thursay. got it liscensed (expired end of march), and insurance tomorrow. this weekend I should be driving it! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    "High pressure" lol, 12-15 PSI is high pressure? I've got some rubber & clamps on mine, I'm not too worried, it's held up.

    Marine fuel line is double wall, you could always use that if you're worried about regular rubber.

    Congrats on the engine swap.

    all I know is tons of people tell me that rubber with hose clamps on the high pressure side of a fuel line is a big no-no, and they last thing I want it a fuel leak sometime down the road in a high pressure fuel line. it is basically my comfort level I was satisfying, and I'm much more comfy with it now... /forums/images/icons/cool.gif/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    the blazer gets painted tomorrow, reassembly on friday, and I'll be running it friday afternoon.
