  • Engine: Rebuild Fire up Success

    I adjusted the timing, "hooked" up the electrical, filled the carburetor and hit the remote start. Half a turn and it started right up...on a couple of cylinders! It ran a few seconds, and ironed itself out. I shut it down, now that I know it runs good, and it's good to go for the install. I want to thank ALL of you for putting up with all my "foolish" questions, and helping me out with all the good advise. THANKS guys!...Click image for larger version

    The "fool" is the one who does not ask questions and blindly does things incorrectly!!!

      I have always wanted an engine test stand, to run engines in 30-60 minutes before re-installing. Cannot tell much in a few seconds. Congrats on it firing up in 1/2 turn. I've never had one start that quick, including the ones I drive daily.

              345 -

              You are eons ahead of many "builders", first time engine starter.

              Why...
              You filled the carburetor with fuel...BEFORE...you tried to start the engine..!

              Three gold stars.

                VERY Nice looking Engine, all pretty and correct '56-'57 Style!

                Wow! That THM thingy looks bolted up there, ALMOST like it belongs there!

                I always thought the Stude. to THM "Adapters" used a Right Hand mount (Ford) Starter!
