Yup, my bad you guys have the newer style PCM / Cluster, it does take about 4-5 seconds...

On the older ones its hit the key and see the pressure almost instantly

No, I didn't know I had to fill the oil filter. So I pulled it and oil started pouring out. So the oil pump had definitely pumped. Plugged in the fuel pump relay, started her, and she gave me almost 3/4 on the oil gauge within seconds. All is fine! You Bonneville Clubbers rock! And I'm darn proud .

Merci beaucoup!

Hi Crhis...looks like I'm late...but I'm here.

Good job.

The injectors you talk about...can you please take pics. I'm interested in the differences.

On the road again! Got a bunch of congrats from neighbors and friends. That sure feels good. They don't know about my secret weapon, the BC!

BillBoost wanted the injector pics:
