Just drove it about 1,000 yards.
That drive was a long time coming.
Brakes are soft (air most likely).
Clutch still feels really weird to me but it works okay.
Release bearing squeal is gone.
Temp gauge barely moved.
Next time we'll let it idle up to temp as I try to figure out the coolant bleeding procedure.
All in all we're pretty happy.
