433 Ready to Roll 

I did my tilt test and the new BOP 1 piece main seal seems to be leak free. I installed some of the rest of the accessories and will be off to my machinist's tomorrow to run this engine in for the first time on his test stand. After run in, we will cut open the oil filter and examine the drained oil for any bearing particles. It takes me two days to get this engine in or out of this car so it is well worth it to run the engine in on a test stand to make sure everything is right.
