I think you might have a slight vacuum leak there... Cool video though!

Fun to watch but hopefully the starting of the engine didn't blow dirt all inside your engine (mechanical clutch fan?)

If you can figure out a way to keep oil in the system, I'd like to see the crankshaft in operation.

Probably wouldn't work so well because of the oil being flung everywhere with an overhead cam. Seems to work alright with pushrods though.

Back in the day, we didn't even need valve covers. Of course, once rpms topped the 1,000 mark we figured out the rockers need more lubrication than a squirt of grease every once in a while.
