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.
