    Finally got my engine fired up

    Got the 306 running, sounds good, only had one small leak on water pump due to leaving out two bolts. Need to set timing, it's to advanced, and idling at 1000+rpm. Ordering mufflers for it tonight.

    Re: Finally got my engine fired up

    Here's another video after I installed the mufflers. Mnkybrz it's a 5.0 gear reduction starter. Still need to get the timing light on it. Got my driveshaft shortened and installed, so in a few days might be able to make it move on it's own.
