Yes still working on it. Finishing up engine wiring. Hoping to fire it up soon.
Trying to figure how post photos again. I haven’t accessed Photobucket is long time. I don’t think it’s free anymore

Better off using PIP if you can. (Button at bottom of screen to install the program... then just follow directions. )

Pleease stop using pootbucket. The images are just blurred for the viewer anyway, so many people never see anything of value. Use the PIP mechanism associated with Pennocks. It's faster anyway. Just have to do it the first time.

Engine wired up. Did ground test have no ground issues.
Added oil, will add coolant, brake fluid and fuel next few days. Hoping to roll out of garage and try starting it next weekend. Hope we have nice weather here in great white north.
Will update photos soon.

Since I have never witnessed a human baby being born, I feel that listening to an engine start for the first time would be as exciting as listening to a baby take its first breaths.

I expect that if I ever witness the former, I may no longer rank the two events as "comparable".

I've done the former twice and the latter dozens of times (... or was it the other way around?!? 🤔) It's hard to compare the two, but they are both definitely thrilling!

88lambo, let me know if you need moral support when you start it, I'm in the area and always available.

No comparison between the two events if you are the parent.
Cars come and go, children last a lifetime....yours or theirs.

Hopefully yours, I would hate to lose a child......although there have been times I might have sold one or two...

Haven’t started it yet. I have developed a ground leak and am trying to figure it out.
I have pulled every fuse and found nothing.

Fired up the car tonight.
Didn’t go as well as I hoped. Oil pressure didn’t build. But found fitting that wasn’t sealing.
Seemed to be miss firing, will have to check firing order and sensors again.
On ran it for couple minutes but One side of engine was hotter then other????

One coil Is dead this why was not running well. Its not firing on 2 cylinders. have ordered new coil.
Compression is 150psi across all 12 cylinders
Low oil flow. Will drop pan and check out pump.
Common problem with this oil pump is mounting bolts come loose and loses oil pressure.
I did find a new pump on eBay in Australia, I bought this as back up plan.
More to follow

Pressure relief valve on oil pump was seized open. I rebuilt pump and installed it.
I cranked engine without spark plugs and have 4 Bar / 60 psi.

Waiting for next nice day to get car out and start it.
Yesterday we got 8” snow, today -21C, tomorrow another 8-12” snow.
