    Fuel, Water, and Oil

    Well, I think I'm about ready to try starting the motor. Since I didn't build it I'm hopping the guy who did knew what he was doing. Supposedly it was freshly built and balanced but there was no paper work to substantiate that. I pulled the plugs out to squirt a little oil in the cylinders and if the plugs are from this motor it all looks good. Just need to fill all the necessary fluids; pull the distributor to prime and check for oil pressure and hopefully it'll start.
    I'm done for the day; probably get to it one day this week after work.

    Looking good Steve. You're still getting this together to sell? Careful there after it's running you may fall in love and need to keep it! Hope the engine work the other guy did was solid and everything goes smoothly. Best luck
    Hidden Content Thanks, Craig

    Lash, I think I'll be able to get my primer tool in there and use my 90 degree 3/8 drill to spin it; thanks for the offer though.

    I'm leaving for a weeks vacation today, in about 3 hours. I told myself I was going to get the Willys fired up and the wheels going around before I left. Yesterday I cancelled my clients to get it done. I double checked everything, filled the trans, pulled the distributor, primed the motor until I was getting oil to all rockers, dropped the distributor back in, gave it some advance, turned on the fuel pump, (fully expecting several leaks from the long sitting Holley carb), checked the float level and hit it. Fired right up. Sounds great, 60 psi oil pressure at 1500 RPM, 175 degree water temp, and no leaks. Man I'm going to hate selling this. I'll post a video when I'm back next weekend.

    That's great Steve. Now you can feel accomplished. Glad you didn't get stuck with a basket case project. I bet you will be sad to let it go.

    That's great news Steve! Glad it went so well, but I'm sure it will be a little sad when it leaves!
