Don't forget the cam break in procedure when you 1st fire it up. That can mean the life or death of your build.

Understand break in procedure for this type of engine is start it ASAP, then run it at 2000 rmp for 20 minutes using SAE 30 "break in oil" ,high in ZNDP(zinc) ,then change out the oil with favorite brand and weight that is high in Zinc additive.
