Starting my new rebuilt L82. Trophies: 13 Give this video a trophy

It cranked up on the first try. I wanna thank all my Motortopia Friends for your support and suggestions. For someone who has never done an engine transplant before I didn't feel like I was doing this all alone. And a big salute of thanks to my 22 year old son. Without his help and muscles this would have taken way longer of me to finish.

Terry O.

Terry,
First of all, if you went with a Highperformance cam, the cam needs to be dial in and then you need to get the timing down before you can even start to adjust the carb. Did you put electric cutouts on your headers? The engine sounds strong....you go boy!
Your friend,
Dr. John
PS: If you can find any one over there to help, there's two HP shops over here in B.R. and you can use my car trailer if needed.

Congratulations Terry!!! Way cool; she's got a pretty nice rhump to her. Let's see if she'll scare you when you put your foot into it!
