Goodluck with parts, that was my friend's first touring car. Since this is your first car, get a good ignitor ( Hobbico Hot Shot II with the 5000mah Nicd works well for most) Use the right combination of fuel and glow plugs, and you shouldn't have any problems with engine break in. My friend used Byrons 20% with a Dynamte Mc Coy 59.

Do it right and spend the money to get some good tools. You'll need a T-wrench of course, and I highly recommend picking up a set of hex drivers.
Also, make sure you get a fail safe and some elastic bands to keep over the carb boot just in case of a power loss.
