So the plan after work today. Run all available tests with AE software, buzz test, demand test, then start. Test drive without chip. Shutdown, unplug batteries and remove key, pull PCM, install chip, then repeat initial process... hopefully this works.

Do a couple of hard pulls from a standing start. One of the best ways to work the air out of the HP oil system.

Ok.. all good now. I'm guessing there was a bad short somewhere in the old harness. Did some good hard pulls on 3 of the tunes to set the rings. Getting high ICP during the runs, but the tuner can fix that.. The main issue is solved and thanks for all the advice.

A little off subject but can I ask who did your machine work and did they balance the rotating assembly

Carters Engine and Machine in downtown. They are the only trusted shop in this area. They do offer and advised for balancing, but I didn't. For longevity I should have, but everything looked and mic'd out ok so I didn't bother.. I know balancing can't be measured but everything's looking good so far

On a low rpm application like these engines, balancing isn’t really necessary. I wouldn’t stress out about not having done it.
