Here's my video, as stated above, it's the first time the cars has run in 42 years. The only things I have replaced on that engine are spark plugs and the factory air box, which I replaced with individual cone filters for better air flow and more room in the engine bay.

Geez - that starts easier than most carb'd cars on cold days. Idle should be 900-1100 RPM. Don't trust your tach if you have another way to check RPM (e.g. like many timing lights can do).

Congratulations.

Please replace fuel hoses if you have not already, otherwise your new project might be rather short-lived!

All flexible hoses and filters for the fuel system have been replaced, I also got the oil filter in the SPICA pump, and all the hard lines were cleaned out. After doing a couple of things with vacuum lines and adjusting the throttle link ends, it seemed to sit at about 1500rpm (based on the tach) on first start, and about 2000rpm after a rev or 2 (again, based on the tach, which I would assume is accurate, since it is mechanical)
