Those pumps are made for smaller motors so they run lower pressure.

If I decide to run the kadrons I.ll probably invest in a fuel regulator...everyone seems to say they are finicky about pressure.

Nice job!  I like the sound of that exhaust.  How does it drive now?

The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

Anyone have any ideas what the sort of audible sound in the not so great video is?

A problem came a rocking, a knock, knock, knocking

I dunno quite what that is, but I know it is not all that good.

Did you check the rocker arms?  Maybe a valve isn't opening/closing properly?  When you put the motor together, did you break in the motor for 20 minutes, cool it off, and then adjust the valves again?  Bent push rods?

Well, duh, somebody put the engine in upside down. They always sound like that upside down 'cause the oil falls away from the pickup. Install engine right side up. If it still sounds like that, there's something wrong with it

I just listened to both videos again.  Check your rocker arms! Based on the sounds from the first video (it's alive) I'm guessing the push rods for one or more valves popped out of the cups at the rocker arms.
