Default Re: Project Karma

Started up the truck yesterday. She started up on the first crank which is a good sign that I have wired everything correctly. Engine has already been broken in by the builder. It is running pretty rough at idle. I will need to get it timed, make sure there are no vacuum leaks, and re-seal the upper water tube on the drivers side. It is leaking a bit. The temp gauge went to 250 and it didn't seem that any water was running through the upper radiator hose. I believe this means that my thermostat isn't opening. Other than that all seems well for now.
