Saturday was both enlightening and a bust at the same time.
Got everything together except my passenger axle (on it’s way from RA). Got the exhaust modified, changed the trans filter, and began filling the fluids.
That was when “bust” began. Turns out my radiator now looks like a sprinkler.......
So that halted me on filling the cooling system. I topped off the PS fluid and checked the oil, then decided to give it a test fire anyway. Hooked up the battery and unplugged the coil pack.
I cranked it over until my daughter noticed the FPR seeping fuel. Replaced that and cranked it once more to make sure it had oil. Once the oil pressure moved she plugged in the coil and we gave it a go.
First turn of the key, she hit off and settled into a perfect idle. Smooth, quiet, and smoke free. Enlightening.
Went out last night and got everything buttoned up. Took her out for her maiden voyage.
This motor pulls strong (well, stronger than the 3.3 and I haven’t given it more than 1/2 throttle yet) and runs amazing.
Drove her to work today without hiccup.
