Monte Carlo restoration

By mwg55

Today is April 25 and anouther milestone is reached.

The engine fired today!! YAHOO.
I finished building the engine almost exactly two years ago and finally started it for the first time today. What a great feeling.

Would you believe it started on the first try? Yeah, me neither. Actually I have been trying to get it going off and on since last Saturday. Chased some electrical problems, stupid ones like not hooking up all the connectors on the column.

Also had a fuel delivery problem, it was the fuel pump so replaced that, set the distributor, it sputtered and started.
