I just went through your building thread again and watched the video of the engine running. Good motivation! Sorry you are selling after all your work but I see you have others to keep you busy.

I have a '40 Olds 70 series 2 door. It has been in the family since 1957. I acquired it in 1994, went through all the same stuff you did on engine rebuild in '95. I feel like we had some similar challenges getting it to run right. We drove it for a while then around 2008 put it in storage for about 12 years. Retired now and ready to get it running again, now I feel like I'm starting all over again.

I'd like to compare notes and get your thoughts on some things. My membership is new so I can't private message you. If you will, please reach out to me.
