Gus, hold the intake valve open with finger and handspin the flywheel fast enough and release the intake valve, the engine will start.Webbie after running in, now has very good compression.Hand spin starting not possible with this high compression. The valves and piston rings did seat in and very well too.
My boss would be touting the great Bosch Blue. I think I put one in my 142 Volvo.
I learned a long time ago to tell wifey the opposite of what I really want.Nellie took about a 2 kg Grouper that I caught sometime ago and asked which portion shall we have for diinner. So Gus suggested the head portion in Curry.
Fish head in fridge and tail portion on dining table.
Conclusion Nellie doesn't need my decision. She is the boss.
Congratulations on getting your engine running; I really enjoy you since of humor and writing.
Keep up the great work!
