Spin the oil pump shaft with drill and get oil pressure in engine-replace distributorStart engine, spot time the distributor and check for leaks and make adjustmentsIf no problems, run engine at idle for two minutes, the change rpms, two minutes each rpm range.Don’t exceed four thousand rpms for the first five hundred miles.

61Misc.Make sure you clean and inspect everything through the rebuild process, this will prevent you from rebuilding a cracked block for instance.Follow the book, specs, procedures, tests, info, measurements and sequences are all critical for success.Organization is key.Replace all parts if you can.Sorry to say, it is cheaper to get a “crate” engine now days- saves time, money and worry. They even have a warrantee that you can’t provide.
