    got teh wagon running again

    Went over to my g-pa's estate and pulled the wagon out of the garage. A quick jump start off my dad's T-Bird and she started right up. When it 1st fired, it sounded like there was a lifter hung up for 5 or 10 seconds, and then the sound went away. Anything to be concerned about? Also, When I turned the A/C on, the idle began surging slightly, and continued to do so until after I shut the A/C off. Once I start driving the car again I'll see if these bugs work themselves out. I can't wait to get the car back on the road.

    Future plans:Semi HO conversion, or Explorer motor swap, shift kit, PI springs and sway bars, KYB-GR2 shocks

    The tapping that a 302 does is no worry. Hell, most 302s do it as part of normal operation

      Probably a lifter bled down from sitting. Nothing to be overly concerned with since it pumped back up and stopped making noise. The idle surge could just be the ECM needs some time to re-learn normal operational parameters since the battery went dead. Get the motor warmed up and drive it around a little bit and it'll probably stop doing that.
