Re: Engine start up 6 months after dyno/build
Thanks for the replies...
My engine builder (in Colorado) suggested turning the whole engine around while it was on it's engine stand...but the shop doing the work for me had already dropped it in and hooked it up...so that was not an option.
I'm being cautious as this stands me in at a lot of $$$, and I'd rather be safe than sorry!...it's a flat tappet cam too (Isky 280-mega), so oil starvation right now could be a nasty surprise!
Don't really want to pull the distributor, so pulling the plugs and cranking without spark seems like some insurance (info I got from Beck Engines start up instructions)...
We'll be firing it up this week, so any other words of encouragement would be great!!!
