Not much chance I'm going to part with these jewels for a while.
My son had to do a video project for school so I just had to do the obligatory burnout for the movie with the Formula. Left twin streaks all the way down the back lane........neighbours called the cops....they didn't come.....some people have no respect for burning rubber.
Finished the engine, filled it with coolant and lowered it to the ground off the blocks tonight.
All I have left to do is wire up the electric choke to a keyed power source....not sure where to connect....may have to run an interior powered switch if I can't find anything.
Then I will remove the distributor and prime the oil pump with a drill and socket.
What'* the best way to prime the fuel with a manual pump that'* driven off the timing chain eccentric. I suppose I will simply make sure the carb is full and dump some fuel into the carb bore to give it a kick.
Will run it at about 2000 rpm for about 15 minutes to break in the new cam and lifters.
Any other suggestions?
