Wonder why they tow strap started it, shouldn't it start via the starter? Am asking since I have never seen a fresh rebuild start.
If you search for "Hagerty" on previous forum posts you'll find a multi-page argument about the bearing clearance choices made by the engine rebuilder they hired to do the babbitt. Tight bearings is the reason for the tow start.
