Well not a great lot but still progress. I did get the upper stainless pieces for the quarter inserts buffed today. All i like now is the final hand polish with the Wenol polish and then i can install it. Also poured a couple of gallons of gasoline in the tank and then turned the key on to pressure up the fuel pump and check for leaks. So far no leaks but time will tell. Still didn`t get it started but it is coming.

One step at a time!! I got my heads cleaned up and the valves lapped in yesterday. I'm headed out to the garage later to put them on. Got called in last night at 9 and got home at 1 A.M. this morning. Caught a few hours sleep and now I'm awake again. I'll probably crash this afternoon. Keep plugging away at it Terry.

Way to plug away Terry -- I'm looking for a moment to check out my ignition but it looks like today I'll be busy (1) cutting the grass, (2) grooming the dog, and (3) finishing the daughter's bathroom remodeling project. Next weekend I'm going to L.A. so that's shot, too! :(

My grass is all white today, Mike. It's about 35 out there now. I'm just procrastinating about going out to the garage to put the heads on my engine. I had to go in for sanding last night. More funds for my 55.
Terry, you'll have to record a wav file of the startup so we all can share in the moment! Keep up the good work!
