Excellent work. I am surprise there was not more oil burning on the headers without the covers. It generally flies everywhere. All the same nice result - clearly a fair amount of tuning still required to do though you should be very happy with your result. It feels great to have your first engine start up.
Is it possible for someone to change the topic title? Its a 289 and the 302 in the title shits me..
I think it will sink in a bit more boof once i drive it again, was knackered last night driving home! Do the videos work?
And yeah, as soon as it ran for a few seconds oil was going everywhere so we put the covers back on. Question - the rockers seem really ticky/loud but i installed them correctly..is this because they are roller rockers now?
Excellent work. It is a huge milestone and you have done a good job. Should update your vid post as I watched them in the wrong order. Could not believe you started it up so easily and then fine tuned the mixture screw to have it running so well. Then realised I watched the last vid first-doh!
Like Hybrid and others I would imagine, the first bang scared the buggery out of me- god bless y-tube for being able to edit it out ;-)

I have now fixed the order of the videos. Now you can see we didnt get the engine perfect first go. Also, the very first kick in the guts was not captured on video as it wasnt for very long because we didnt want to keep the neighbours up at 2am..
