Breakthrough today - I had the engine running !
It fired up first "turn of the key" (no key yet, just wires touched together) and ran fine for a minute until I shut it off. No water connected yet, but good oil pressure. No leaks evident yet.

Transmission filter and cooler present. Sierra Teves II brakes (without ABS) in place.

There's still plenty to do.

The Cortina actually moved under its own power today and then broke down just outside the garage due to a suspected lack of ATF. I'm feeling a bit more optimistic for making the National Finals this weekend.
