So I ordered two oil filters online from a Canadian site, they got back to me and said they didn't have any in stock, but would send me two Wix's as replacement for same price smile I also called my local CT and they ordered in a Fram for me, which I will use for break-in and then go with the better filters after that. Best-case scenario, I 'could' be up and running tomorrow...

Ya, looks like substantial storm headed this way.

So I got plugs cleaned up and gapped, same with the points. Oil filter came in too, so ready to pour that in. Sounds like 7 quarts is right, based on other posts. I can't trust the dipstick yet, as I had to add one since it was missing and it's possible something is off. I'll put in 7 and we'll see what she looks like.

Being a Pontiac engine, looks like 5 quarts is what it actually holds. I just put in T liters, hope that's ok!

Yea was just going to say but before I posted I found this on the Pontiac form . That way you can check your dipstick after the proper amount of oil is put in as it may be the same as one of your old motors but it I think it also depends if the oil pan is the same .

How long should it take to get fuel to the pump? Any way to test that I installed it right?

Tripped up by a bad charger. In the meantime, clutch and pressure plate installed. Also did the 'cold' valve adjustment from the manual. Hopefully soon it'll fire. Then on to the transmission...
