Thanks. Actually, it's a gift for the in-laws.

One of the best/easiest start-ups ever for me -- one brief crank, it fired, then died. Then on the second crank it started and ran fine. Only about 10 seconds of mild lifter noise until the oil pressure built up. Adjusted the idle speed and then ran it for about 20 minutes to get it nice and warm. Clutch working great, but only tried it in the driveway in first and reverse.

More general work on the FF tomorrow, then hope to get it licensed, insured, and back on the road -- hopefully for at least another decade.
