Fired the 406" today
Yup, finally got it together today, put new gas in tank, checked oil and water, spun up the oil pump with my Dewalt drill, and turned the key. Fired immediately, and stayed running, good oil pressure and water temp.AND WOOOO-HOOO WAS IT SWEET. Thing sounds fantastic, especially since it was through open headers. Can't believe how much better it sounds than the old 350. Had a slight water leak at the heater core hose, but tightened the clamp, and that fixed that. Planning to install my exhaust next before I get it out on the street, but can't wait to see how it pulls.
I want to thank everyone who was so patient answering all my millions of questions over the last few months, Everyone was great, and I appreciate all the suggestions/opinions/info.
Will try to get some audio/video of it as soon as I can.
