Took about 3 1/2 hours motors in and most accessories are on. Will finish assembly and be cranking tommorrow. Dropped right in and was easier then pulling.

Good luck, it sucks to drop it in then have to pull it again, but it's looking good! What are the specs on the engine?

It's beautiful, Alan! I can't wait to hear it roar. Can you refresh our memory about cam, intake, and carb?

 

Thanks!

Don't feel bad, I had my motor in and out a couple of times also, only one time was a killer when I didn't get the tranny fully seated and blew out the pump. That was a costly error........I'll never make that mistake again!
