Thrilled to death

After way to many years of sitting(15) I finally have found time to tear my '56 apart again and this evening pulled the front clip and to my surprise the engine turned with just a ratchet!!! What a relief. I had considered a swap but $ just won't allow right now so to get the carbs redone and go from there.

Good battery / good gas /maybe put some oil in the intake and turn it somemore with the ratchet first and you got a runner. LOL good luck
