Started my project in Nov 2011. Been putting whatever time and money I can spare into it and today with the help of TRS I started the motor for the first time! :yahoo:

Found quite a few kinks that need to be worked out... was leaking fuel in a couple spots. My remote oil filter was leaking. Still need to have a driveshaft made. And still have to put the floor shifter in and hook up the linkage. But all together hearing that baby start up was music to my ears :icon_cheers:

Thanks again TRS! Here is a link to some video of the first start:

Always a great feeling when you put all that time into it, and you can hear it work. Sounds great......
