454 is Alive !!

Many winter projects - Comp cams LS6 nostalgia solid-lifer cam, performer RPM rect heads, airgap intake, quick fuel 830 carb, AC install, console-gauges-RS kit etc anyway finally the day for ignition and after a few glitches - dizzy one tooth off, pop and snort - started up and once timing and carb set smoothed out very well no huge leaks good oil pressure

Good job. Nice ride.
No huge leaks? Does this mean there were little leaks?
