I've solved my issues with it not starting (rusted grounds, rebuilding the starter) & it fired right up on the first key turn. I took it for a spin & it feels very energetic. Definitely more potent than a SOHC 22E mid range for sure. Low end is lacking a little but when you get to cruising speed, you won't even care about that. Decent pull starts at about 2800rpm up. Timing is 15 degrees advanced @ idle & the coolant temps range from 185 to 205 degrees F. Idle is 712 RPM. I will keep documenting as the days go on but so far, so good. I'll post a video of it running tomorrow.
