I should of stated I had this motor ran when it was originally built.
The motor builder got with the High School and they used it as a shop project.
The shop built the motor stand, and the mechanic built the motor and took it to the HS>
Then they hooked everything up, and started the motor, timed it and everything.
They said it was a "big deal" when they got it all hooked up and running.
It was ALL set for me to just drop it in the engine bay and start it.
Then I went and took the distributor out... LOL

So now I know it is out of time,.. but a friend of mine who drives race cars says he can time it in five minutes.

Anyway I had the motor built several years ago, and I need a stand now to do this.

You mentioned about the fan. That was part of what got me to thinking about breaking it in before installing it. I have a this great big industrial box fan. It's about 4 feet square. It moves a LOT of air. I was thinking I could set it in front and let it move air into the radiator.
