401 ci Buick NailHead Compression Check

Compression looks good so next week maybe it will start and even run with a little work

The Gasser should be ready to start soon. The fuel pump, carburetor and distributor, ignition coil are on the motor and the spark plugs, spark plug wires, radiator and hoses and ready to install. I will find top dead center on #1 compression stroke and install the plug leads and set 20-30 degrees of initial advance and give it a few bumps with new premium fuel and a shot of starter fluid to see if it will turn over.
