Default Flathead Friday! Crusty V8 Pt23: Lets finish the build!

Hello. Welcome to the latest video offering from Mart's Garage. Note the new channel name.

In this episode I button up the top end of the Crusty Flatty. This is the final video in the build series.
We've had the teardown, the machining and repairs, and now the build is complete. But don't despair. We still have to get this thing installed in a vehicle, put all the ancillaries in place, get it running and eventually take it for the first drive.
Will it grenade on the first fireup? Will those sketchy bearings and rods knock like hell? Have I bored it too tight? Is it too loose? How about the valves?
Thanks for following on this journey. But stick around. there's so much more to see.

I'm trying to build the channel so please subscribe, and share with friends. Thanks.

Mart.
