It runs.Fired it up yesterday.Ran it for about 15 minutes and shut it down when it started to get hot.
Cooled down for 30 minutes and fire up again,set  the timing.It was a little retarded which explains the overheating.
Sounds good,a bit of a lumpy idle with the cam,and still pull 18 inches of vacuum.
Still need to do fine tuning but that can be tricky with a fresh,tight motor.
Everything needs to get settled in.
One minute it idles perfect,than almost stalls,hit  the gas and then idles high,then drops and stalls.
I told doug to drive it to put a load on the engine to help seat the rings.He has some oil smoke coming out of the exhaust,but it was gradually going away.

I am going to have to invest in a better timing light with the degree button on the back.
Factory timing calls for TDC,but with the bigger cam,she likes running at 10 degress BTDC
I beleieve there is still room for improvement.
BTW,Steve the vacuum pod had to come forward so it did not hit the firewall.
