Update. I haven't driven it because the front clip is off, but it seems to be running great now. I adjusted valves one by one using the method that puts the lifter on the bottom of the lobe. I also got the timing dialed in at 20 degrees BTDC initial and it all comes by 2500 rpm (36 degrees). Starts right away and it idles with a nice lope at about 900 rpm. I can wait to drive it! Thanks for all the help.
