    It\'s ALIVE.......

    Finally lit the new motor[​IMG] in the 75, after several weeks of engine work[​IMG][​IMG]. Nothing like the smell of burn in at 2000 RPM...I'm just excited I guess. I suppose it doesn't mean much, but finally all the hard work of scraping off 'JB-Crud', painting, cam degreeing, torqueing every bolt, etc etc, it fired within 3 cranks and ran sweet for 20 minutes[​IMG]....Now she's in the garage cooling off for the night, hardening up the cam. Maybe tomorrow I'll drive around a little bit, in 30 degree weather, with the top down[​IMG]......

    ALRIGHT! Now, when I send you my 400, I want the 5.7 rods, not the 5.56 rods, OK?! Haha, j/k.

    Go ahead, send me your 400, I'll fix it it right up for you, and send it back to you in about 15 years, after I test it...[​IMG]

    Re: It\'s ALIVE.......

    Sure, Marv, a doubler would be nice- Try finding a 205 originally mated to a 400[​IMG]. Everybody is asking WAY too much for a hunk of iron with gears in it[​IMG].
