We started the engine tonight. It took a litle finagling to get the starter to work. We had to bypass our start switch and just jumper the starter to the positive lead coming off the battery to get it to turn over. I think we have something wired up wrong as the brake lights are on except when the pedal is pressed.

We also had the distributor wires plugged in wrong. We didn't have a service manual to tell us the correct order when we put the distributor on. Fortunately Jeff remembered that they were just random and we got them plugged in correctly.

The engine seems to run well. There's no exhaust and the car is still on blocks so we didn't drive it, but tranny and clutch seem to be working!
