Hot-Rod Newport build progress for September 9.

Everything worked great last night for the 10 or so miles the Newport roared around town. So today I re-torqued the exhaust headers, drained and examined the oil (looks better than expected for a new rebuild!), installed a new K&N oil filter, poured in new synthetic oil, topped off the other fluids, and then fired 'er up to listen through a mechanic's stethoscope for untoward noises. Valves and rockers sound smooth, as do the lifters, and the same with the bottom end.

Doctor says she's ready to roll!
