  • The flash-over that has been mentioned is actually a leak at the plug seal. I don't have any gaskets on the plugs but will make some small copper rings and anneal them so they're soft. With the plugs being so tiny (8-36 thread) I really didn't want to crank down on them. Whenever an engine gets finished (machined) there's always hours of tinkering and modifying to get things right.
    Thanks for looking and commenting.

    • Very nice job! Sure doesn't sound like the 300 in my 89 F250 though.

      Thank you very much for sharing the entire build and video here! These are a personal favorite engine of mine and I loved every post you made of this thing!
