Your lucky, you have a helper. I'm flying solo. Although, some of the help I've had it'* better to be alone.

those heaters can be had for cheap if you find one that doesnt work. they are simple and cheap to fix but people dont want to put in the work. i got a 150k kero for 50 bucks and all it needed was a new cord and a filter. its much nicer working on your car when you can feel your fingers.

Good luck with your build! It looks to me like you've got a great start. From one 92-95 Bonneville takeaparter to another, I hope you do great things!

Yes, they say the middle rear cylinder, #4, is the hottest because that part of the engine doesn't get cooled as well as the rest. Air flows around the front of the engine and around the sides, but #4 gets no love.
