Thanks for the input.
I'm not sure the intake can be rotated 90 degrees as it is oblong, and not perfectly square. I'll take another look though.
I started it up, and it seemed to run well for the couple minutes I ran it.
I took the Techno Estoril off my Lazer and put it on the pinto until my Simonini comes in probably on Monday.
The biggest problem right now is that there is a metal pinging sound. I think the piston is barely touching the head and causeing the metal clanging sound.
I'm gonna install a second base gasket and hope for the best tomorrow.
I'll let you know.
