sorry bill the cameras in the garage and its 8 degrees so ill get it tomorrow. okay so got it and turned it over twice to prime, it started imeditly and ran pretty good till i frogot the stupid little bolt that holds the acumulater to the trany and spewed trans fluid all over the floor. i got that fixed and cleaned and started it again, it ran good but had some lifter noise. i gave it about 30 seconds to pump them up but after about 10seconds after the oil light came on,imiditly shut it off. i asked dan and bill what to do and decided i needed to pull off the pump. i did and packed it with vasilene and reinstalled the pump.

so today i turned it over twice again then tryed to start it, it wouldent start. so i started inspecing everything and found that the ground wire for the coils was kinda broken. tomorrow i will repair the wire and try again. it was turned over alittle trying to get it started and it seemed after about two or three times it got smoother so maybe it got primed ? i also checked the spring and it moved free with out a problem. will i be okay trying to start it tomorrow ? when i pulled the pump apart it had some oil in it but was not full, the oil filter was full and i refilled it.

thanks for reading promise pics tomorrow
a special thanks to bill and dan for lots of knowledge and help

well i fixed the broken wire and it still wouldnt start. so i pulled a plug and comfired i was getting gas and that i had no spark. so i started looking and serching, i unpluged the cam sensor,still no start. and it seemed that the HB wasent on all the way, the bolt was tight. so i pulled it off and checked to make sure the crank sensor was plugged in good. it was so i started to put the HB back on and it seemed the crank was to big and it didnt want to fit on it. i did notice the crank was alittle bigger than my stock one because i had to use the timing gear from another 3800 cause miine wouldnt fit on it without getting stuck. the only reason ican think of is that the crank sensor couldnt pick up it reading cause it was too far away, so sunday ill try andfit the HB back on and give it another try. here are some pics

the engine all in and everything hooked up
