Getting the motor cleaned up a bit. I got a new water pump, hoses, and fuel pump coming Monday. Found the original color Julep Green Poly DQE-41697-DAL while cleaning and the engine block number SD 807895 11-A and the number behind the water pump is 4 J216178.

Any advice before I try to fire this thing up? Should I just put the pumps on, cross my fingers and go?
