First Start AMC 360 Rebuild for Jeep CJ7

This is the very first time we actaully tried to start the engine after a complete rebuild of the AMC 360. We've been working on our first complete vehicle rebuild/restoration a Jeep CJ7. Getting closer and closer to driving her around. Had some trouble with the video cutting in and out, so I'll apologize in advance.

75 Jeep CJ5 304 - first start after rebuild
First start after rebuild. I first crank the engine over with ignition off to get fuel to the carb and to make sure the oil pressure builds some. (yes I did prime it before hand) Once I see fuel in the filter I crank it a little more to fill the float bowl.Then I turn the ignition on and we have some internal combustion. Timing is off quite a bit so it doesn't stay running until I adjust it a little, then it fires and runs. The noise you hear, and see me looking for is an Exhaust leak....headers, they can be a bitch... Update on exh leak....I actually had to build sections of the header sealing surface with weld and file flat....cheap ass headers. The ports were just a hair different in areas..
