IT'S ALIVE....IT'S ALIVE........IT'S ALIIIIIVE!!!! Yup-it worked. Only sat for a week with my witches brew of solvents soaking the chambers and today I broke it loose. Just a few back-and-forths and she puked oil out of all the spark plug holes. I kept rotating the crankshaft for a while and the oil pump pumped, water pump pumped, everything worked. Then we got the battery hooked up and spun the motor for a while as it spit the last of the oil out. Then we put the plugs back in and gave it gas. She fired right up- no expensive noises- just some lifter clatter. WHEW!!! I told my friend he is the luckiest guy in the universe and he agreed. Thanks for all the input. I used ATF, #2 oil, and Acetone.
