Ken,

Aside from the distributor being on the wrong end, it is gorgeous :ymapplause:

It was in September when I broke my hotrod's motor. Things are looking up now.
I static set the timing and it was right on the money...go figure. Filled up the float bowls and hit the gas a couple of times and VROOM! (v) ..]
No leaks or bad noises coming from the engine so big smiles here. O::::
Now on to setting the hydraulic throw out bearing as I was able to remove the "hatchet" counter weight plate behind the flywheel on this motor and then getting all those parts and pieces back into that little space under the hood.

I'm adding an oil pressure light so a little dash R&R will be necessary and I still have to set up the front end alignment as I replaced all the ball joints.
Then it should be ready to do some road work. ..]

I posted a video of the test stand, click on the "gear" in the lower right of the video and pick HD.
