Gentlemen, we have engine start!

I had all of the hardware done by my schedule but those pesky fuel lines kept delaying me. At first it leaked at the hose/connector interfaces. My bad. Redone correctly. Then I decided I wanted some other fittings to remove some of the hoses. Wait for it to come. Decide I want another fitting, got it, but it was the wrong one; order the new one, etc. Finally I got to the point where the hoses were all good but the leak was at the fitting interface! Rather than buy other fittings, I found some washers that go inside and bingo, problem solved. Except that another fitting leaked where it has an internal seal. Since I had extra fittings, I replaced the offending one, tested and all was dry.

After getting the engine up to temp, I noticed that the fuel pressure was low so I adjusted the regulator. Checked the timing and it was good.

Now the tuning fun begins...
