Do you have an ignition system in mind? Can't wait to heat that baby fire up! I gather the water pump will be belt driven.

Yes I do. I use Roy's ignitions from S/S. I plan to make some pipes and then try to start it up.

Roy Sholl is a supplier of ignition systems that many engine builders use.

Company name is S/S Machine & Engineering, LLC.

Well it fired up today. I had to fool around with the distributor for a little bit but finally got it to pop. Now the fun begins with the tuning and fiddling around but it works!

I had the fan belt off. Don't want to spin the water pump dry or it will smoke the seal.

I knew you were close, but I was surprised it's running already. I can't wait to hear it when it's tuned up.
