I think it's completely out of gas.... I out ~3-4 gallons in, lots of gurgling from the pump, but couldn't get anything out of the return line. I cracked the fitting there. None spraying from injectors either. 

Race car button going in.

If I had a dollar for every time I missed a harness connection when putting something back together, I'd have five dollars, which isn't that much, but it's weird that it happened so many times...

This was so long ago now, I'm vaguely remembering it needs to be pulled for timing things? 

Which is also to say, timing is "random" it doesn't die when loaded, but still is shooting some flames out the headers.

Yeah, whoever is the hottest big girl out there, this is hotter. And those panels are so flat! Java, you did a great job!

May have just blown her up..... Went for a 1 mile ish drive. It was spewing water out of the rad cap a block or so in.... I figured it was just due to not having a cap... Got home. Rad seems empty. Won't restart. crying

 

Fawk.

Oh no!

Let her-and you-cool down, refill the radiator and try to start her up again.

Wont start. But it cranks?

If you just filled the rad and drove it around the block without a cap there is a good chance that it blew a lot of water out when the thermostat opened and blew out the air bubble in the system. 

Mayhaps moisture has landed where it is not wanted?

Assuming it does crank, a compression test will tell you if something bad happened.

Cranks. But hopefully it just blew it out the cap. 

Off to get new battery. And rad cap.... 

 

Took a solid 30 seconds of hose to refill. 

 

 

Also, transmission is acting very strange. Fluid is full, hopefully it's just a plunger or something in the valve body

That is THAT low, not on air bags? Bold move if so.

And yeah, that is the pic I wanted to see. Looks awesome in the wild.
