    Yeah i talked to the place i brought it & he said i could return it or fix the squirter & get it running & see how it goes, there is 90 days warranty so i thought i would get it in & see how it runs, then i will get a compression test done, I will remove the valve cover & inspect the rockers & replace that gasket also,
    the seller was really understanding & seemed to have a good attitude, he said he drove it in the car before removing it & it felt like one of the stronger engines he has had, he said there were no noises & it ran quite well, He gave me the option of sending it back but i thought then i would have to wait until another second hand one came up for sale & i would have to remove & replace all gaskets, seals etc again & check everything over again anyway, so i will wait until i get it running & have it compression tested & go from there.

    PS
    I silver soldered the pipe back in place & refitted the squirter,

    Fired the 12ht up this afternoon. was surprised when it fired up first kick, I chucked all the vacuum lines over my shoulder except for one, then removed the heater from inside the intake & ported & polished the intake, then removed all the vacuum switching & wiring for the shutoff valve, i will use a simple choke cable hooked up to the shutoff butterfly to stop the engine, the motor sounded great with no knocks or rattles & the rockers sounded pretty quite as well,
    Now its running i can start putting my cruiser back together after work each afternoon this week & hopefully get some k's on it next weekend,
    this is the only video i have so far of it running, I only ran it twice for a short time & i need to get the radiator back in, oil pressure was also pretty good so happy days
