Found there was no compression in cylinder 1 on the new motor. Cylinders 2,3, and 4 all had 175-180 psi, but 1 had 18 psi. Leak down test showed it was all going out the intake valve. Pulled the head and the valve and found there were carbon chunks smashed on the valve seat preventing it from closing. After cleaning it off if seems to seal better now. Won’t know for sure though until the gasket set comes in the mail tomorrow.

Also finished off the throttle linkage conversion. It runs on bearings and is nice and smooth. 🙂

Also bought a tool that will make a nice bead on the end of the new aluminum fuel lines.
