I was able to turn my newly rebuilt engine with the crank handle for the first time a few days ago. I squirted oil in the sparkplug holes and turned it quite a few rounds over a period of several days. I have the exhaust pipe connected to the manifold but have not tightened it with a wrench. I noticed now that some oil has come out from the pipe to manifold connection. I hope don't have enough oil in the pipe and muffler to cause a problem when crank-up time comes.

No problem, but you will kill every insect in a two block radius and you may have some neighbors come to see what is burning.

LOL

I was not clueless when I started my T after 45 years in storage so I did the first start outside.
It was beautiful!
The smoke screen covered the street about a half mile in both directions and it took about 15 minutes to see the house again.
I warned my wife ahead of time so when I could finally see the house she was on the porch laughing at me.

It is one of the joys of owning a T.

I think I'll do it again in the spring just for fun!

Ever use Seafoam in a vehicle? We had a customer buy it and put it in in the parking lot. A passer-by called 911 and reported a car on fire.

Mmmmmm, can't wait Tommy.
My Crappy '24 leaves a cloud wherever it goes. We stopped at a tool vendors spot for a minute once at a show. When the guys were ready to go I said "Here's a little smoke for ya John!" Blipped the throttle hard, drove away and left him in a cloud... The breeze was just right... Hehehehe!
True story!
