I did. Turns out my son forgot to scrap all of the old gasket off the block. Once I got that off and reinstalled the manifold everything was fine. Other issues have arisen but they are minor.
On another matter, I know I'm new to the forum, but I'm sure someone out there could have came forward and volunteered some words of wisdom. However, no one did. I'm somewhat disappointed that no one felt they could help me.
