Nice to hear the progress. Just to be sure, you're priming the the engine
with the plugs out right? ie zero compression. This is way easier on the
starter and battery and it'll build oil pressure much more quickly.

ball valve to make everything work right. I had an oil leak from the oil
cooler which was also fixed. I am registering 8 psi on a very low battery
but it's all good. The battery is recharging and I should see 10-14 I
suspect soon. Keep in mind this is just a start with no spark or fuel.
> On note about the battery box. I haven't had time to call the shop to
talk to Rick. From what I have heard he's a really busy guy, so I don't
think I could get the box made within the next month.. but I really don't
know. I'll find out more info at some point.
