    Re: where to start on rebuild of 425

    So I got to work on the truck today. Pulled the distributor out, dumped 3 parts of oil in it and ran the oil pump. After it primed, instantly found my leak... It was the sending unit. Pulled it out and replaced it with a pipe plug. No more leak. Tame the oil pump some more while bumping the motor over to try and lube things up. Replaced distributor, tried to test compression on #1 while finding tdc and it blew the cheap tester off at 150ish so its even higher. It's gust one of the testers with rubber tip that you hold over the hole. Then I found out they don't wana start on water LOL I have a bed mounted fuel cell that apparently snow melt runs right into without a cap. Drained the tank and dumped some fresh gas down the carb, after a few small fires, I'm getting it to technically "run" but ran out of daylight :-) will work on it more tomorrow
