Not exactly a start up video but pretty close.

And it was preceded by the obligatory one of these

And followed up with brief walk around

Afterwards I put it up on the lift to fill the trans and adjust the clutch, then took it for a brief trip around the block.  Everything seems to be working well.  Good oil pressure, no leaks.  I need to be nice to it while the clutch wears in, then I can see if it runs like I remember it should.

Thanks guys, I thought you would like the Flame on. It was a real relief and a thrill when it started and ran right. I started wearing the apron during this project. Amazing how much cleaner my shirts and pants stay. Harbor Freight has them for 4 bucks, I bought a couple.  Tomorrow the hood goes back on and the garage gets cleaned up.

And yes the beer was planned, I brought it out there as a confidence thing.  I wanted it running smooth before the beer lost its chill.  And it worked!

Well done, Pat. She sounds great, and I believe the shop foreprincess agrees. Very happy for you Bud.
