Sounds great! I love starting a motor up after it's been all apart and I put it back together. It's so rewarding, even if it's a lawnmower engine, more so if it's a big V8 though.
My last enginbe tear-down was earlier this year when I replaced a head gasket and cylinder base gasket on my 2001 Kawasaki ZX9R. I have to confess that after it was together, I turned the key on, stabbed the starter button, and the motor did nothing. I double checked my wiring harness connections, checked fuses, and basically wasted an hour troubleshooting. Only then did I notice it was in gear... I put it in neutral and it fired right up. Doh!
The only good thing that came out of this was that I discovered my fuel pump was getting very loud (a sign of imminent failure). It only runs after the starter button has been pressed, so I never heard it running over the noise of the engine before. I replaced it with a low-mile used one and carry the old one as a spare. They are very easy to change and will strand you if they fail.
