I got a bad squeal from the belt that I need to fix, but I think that will be resolved when I install the power steering pump and get rid of the idler pulley. For whatever reason, the firing order was seriously wrong on the cap from when I bought the motor, but a quick check on the internet and we had it resolved. It sounds really good now and I couldn't be happier.
BIG THANKS to Rich GRSC for his wiring help and getting me thru the first start.
