Well I got my fuel lines all reconfigured and filter installed.
Squeezed the prime bulb a few times, turned the key, and my rebuilt engine roared to life. I was shocked how quick it started and feel great knowing that I won't be getting water in my newly rebuilt motor. Thanks again.
This was the first time Ive cranked it since I blew up the old motor and had it replaced with a rebuilt motor. I wasn't going to take any chances with doing it half assed, thus the new water separating filter and the thread sealant. Why cheap out with $1 teflon tape when $4 sealant is the right thing to use?
Anyway, I was used to my old motor being difficult to start till it warmed up. And I figured the engine would need to turn over a few times, since I did a total rearranging of where the filter was located and the gas lines had been emptied. So when I primed with the squeeze bulb and it cranked first time, after having lines purged and sitting a couple weeks, I was practically in shock. LOL.
