Default Dad's Cruiser is going back together

We got dad's head back from the machine shop and a new OEM gasket kit from Cdan. Today is the day it all goes back together. He is doing all the work, I'm not allowed to lift anything quite yet.

Almost....

The head is back in and we lashed the valves cold. It runs and idles but still has a stumble at low RPMs. We should have it going strong with another days work. It got dark and was raining so we called it a night.
