My 8 year old daughter started the car, first one to crank the rebuild engine and it started.
Mechanically run fun, no ticking, no knocking which used to be the case.
I do have leak from manifold studs, 5 and 6 I think.
I couldn't start the engine the next day. I think it was because the intake\manifold was flooded with coolant.
Next is to take the manifold out, apply sealant on the studs and tighten them properly.
Few days delay but at least I know the bottom end is good.
Few pictures attached.
