I added 2 gallon of gas and hauled it about 5 miles on the trailer to slosh the fuel around. I drained it again and added 10 gallon of premium and added a little to the carburetor through the vent hole. Now it fires right up. I then installed the manifold to turbo pipe and down pipe and fired it again. I was surprised at how well it ran for original 1962 plug wires. Now to work on the crystallized antifreeze in the intake and heads. I think I am going to have to pull them off but I will try some radiator flush first and see what happens.
