Going to put the rest of it together tonight!

Thank you everyone for your help and advice through this long, drawn out rebuild!
Awesome! I hope it runs good!

Yup, just getting most of the little things tied up. I went to go put the fenderwells back in, and noticed the exhaust manifolds leaking. All 8 cylinders. Really aggravating as i even resurfaced the manifolds to ensure they would seal correctly, and then anti-seized and torqued the bolts to 45 ft/lbs! I'm thinking about ordering the Remflex gaskets, theyre only $42, and guaranteed to seal, so ill give that a shot.

Other than that, ive run it 3 times for about 15-20 min, to break it in, and it seems all 3 times it took quite a long time to start. I think its just because theres still a bunch of air in the oil system still.

Yea. Until.you drive it and hammer that fukkbag it'll be off a bit.

I used felpro manifold gaskets and i had zero issues. They were 9 bucks. Very strongly reinforced.

I ordered the Remflex gaskets for $32 on amazon already. I've had a history of exhaust leaks and me never being able to fix them, so im taking no chances! lol
