Flathead fired for the 1st time!

The 52 is getting closer to road ready every day! It fired up today. Dumped in some gas, pressured up the fuel system, cranked over three times and came alive! What a sweet sound: 276 cid flathead, Isky Max 1 cam, open reds headers, MSD ignition, Offy heads, Holley 390 4bbl...

Careful - it gets in your blood... congratulations on the successful firing!

If it's a new build, don't let it idle very long without a load on it or the rings won't seat properly. Now, get it on the road asap. lol

I've never posted a video before. Can I add it to this site or does it have to be on YouTube or a similar site?

Thanks for posting the video. That is a good sounding engine and seeing it keeps me in the game working on mine. I got the 3 speed automatic replaced with a 4 speed auto today and with a few more hours tomorrow will have the transmission cross member fabbed and installed. This time around it will be a bolt in.
