Got up yesterday morning and hit the truck real hard. Around 1pm i had it all bsck together and tried test firing.....nothing, not even a POP....pulled the distributor and turned it 180, tried again snd the 360 fired right up! I wanted the fan to come on just so I lnew it worked, so fonslly aftet letting the rngine run for over a hslf hour it finally kicked on (guess the 180 degree thermostat works pretty good lol)
Burped the coolant, changed the oil again and took it for a test drive.
With the combo of the longrr duration low lift 360 cam and the 1.7:1 adjustable rockers the idle really isnt choppy, but you can hear its hot work done to it
It has a lot more power from idle to redline...after my test drive i csme back home and when i turned in the driveway I mashed it and the truck went sidways all the way up the driveway!
My dad came over around dinner time and picked it up to take it home. Called me when he got home and said he loved it.
