well im not a very happy camper at the moment.. i hooked up some more wires this morning that are necessary to run the engine. my plan was to start it for a few sec. just to here her run!!! i hooked the battery up and didnt small any burning wires so i was happy about that, turned my radio on and it worked, turned the lights on and they worked. i thought things were going good so i turned the key to the run position and instantly smelt gas! i looked out at the throttle body and it was soaked. so i blew it off with the air gun and this time watched when i turned the key. to my surprise gas was literally flowing out of the entire throttle body!!
: i was fuming. so i tore the tbi unit apart on the bench. ( side note when i bought the engine the guy said he just rebuilt the tb, what a lieing POS!!!) this is what the gasket looked like when i tore it apart, the black is the gasket... guess my next step is to rebuild the tb.
