Well, with wheels on the car “running”, it was time to take it around the block. although it stalled about 5 times around a short neighborhood spin, it felt great to have it on the road. The stalling is a bit of an issue as it it literally cuts out when in gear and approaching a stop or gear change.
I am in the process of researching the issue but believe I have it isolated to the carburetor. Once I have it figures out, I will post more next time. In the meantime, here is a grainy video that my neighbor took while I was heading around the block. He said it was like an electric car since it kept on stalling out!
