Ok, after some teething problems everything is done and it started right up and runs fine Wooo Hooo. The "teething problem" was caused by borrowing an old beam style torque wrench from my neighbor, he swore it was accurate. Well after getting everything together when I started it up I noticed antifreeze leaking from the engine bottom left side. I knew right away what it was, ran to Auto zone and picked up a new torque wrench and took everything apart to re-torque the head. Sure enough the second time was the charm... Now, do you guys think I could have screwed something up with improper torque setting the first time? I only ran it a few minutes before noticing the leak. I did loosen all the head bolts completely just to make sure before I restarted the torquing procedure. Looking at the oil there is no milkiness and the antifreeze is clear. Second question, I only ran it for 10 minutes before it started to rain and I didn't notice any dramatic improvement in performance. I'm guessing the motor is still tight so I'm not getting nervous till I hit 300 miles or so. Do I need to re-jet on a big bore install? Could that be it? I could easily raise the needle jet one notch. Thanks for all your help.... Ron W.
