My Little Hot Rod 140 Idle, Mellow, and a Little Bumpy

I'm very excited that the Corvair 140 engine is running so good. I'm jamming to get the car driving down the road. Oh, and I never realized that the motor is off-center by about 4" until I got it re-installed.

Re-check your belt tension. Looks like it might be just a little loose (kinda floppy) you should be able to just turn the alternator fan with one hand. Should not be easy to turn the alternator pulley. If it is properly tight make sure the belt is truly correct 9width height and length need to be correct. If all is good then perhaps it is just the way I am seeing the video. The engine sound very good!!
