I don't know that 4000 posts is a thing to be celebrated!

So, do you have to come up with another means of pressurizing the oil now? Could you pressurize it with something lighter just to get it lubed & turning over, and then drain & refill for the big fire-up?

That's probably what I'll do but I need a container that I can easily pressurize (only about 20 psi). I tried a big liquid laundry detergent container but the plastic stretches and looks like it's going to pop.

Those stripes and paint detailing sounds great. I can't wait to see it.

A 2-liter bottle can take a lot of pressure. If it worries you, put it into a 5-gallon bucket of water to contain any "blast force". Like they do when they are filling SCUBA tanks, if you have ever seen that.

Something I heave read about on small block chevy engines is to remove the distributor, attach a drill to the distributor/oil pump shaft, and spin it with a drill.

Is that an old picture? It looks like autumn.

Great pictures.

Forkenswift sure is shiny now. Wheels, tires, underside of hood is amazing; must have spent hours scrubbing and polishing there alone. Kept looking for the stripes, must be along the bottom sides??

Looks like you had a warm, sunshiney day and a lot of people.

Should of had a Low $$$ prize. I'll bet no one would else was close.

Congratulations on getting it spiffed and running for the show. Proud of you.

Ah - now I see what you were getting at.

It's recent as in sometime in the past couple of years.
