After 8 weeks and countless delays, the van gets a heart transplant. This was it's second cold start.

First impression is that the pulling power this engine has is great for these 6500 pound gorillas. I'm running low rpm's for the break in, but I can tell breaking the tires loose will come easy after 500 miles and an oil change. After that, I'll do a video of some full throttle runs and see what happens.

I need to install a manual choke and set the advance timing.

Stay tuned for more....

Break it in like you're going to drive it.
