Welcome!  Several of us are in the LA area.  Perhaps we should have an in-person meet, 'rona-permitting?


If you car doesn't presently run, and you're unsure of re-start procedures, it may help to post in the "general troubleshooting" sub-forum.  The usual culprits are of course fuel-air-spark, assuming that the valvetrain and so forth are healthy, and that the compression is OK.


4L80 is an unusual choice, to go behind a small-block.  Was the original intended for drag racing?
