Look good Bill – got my engine back from the rebuilder on Friday all rebuilt and balanced.  .030 over and mildest 256 cam from Gary P and Schneider cams.

 

Bud’s machine & engine in  Lakewood, WA.  Shop has been there 40 years plus – Bud is 75 and still working the phones, desk and balancing machine.  When I brought my heads up to him 2 years ago,  I thought it was a 2 man job to lift Poly heads.  He unloaded them himself from my truck!

 

Anyway – starting to make progress myself over the weekend.  Set valve lash, installed oil pump & pick-up, oil slinger, timing cover, oil pan, dampner, water pump, oil filter adapter.  Did some painting.  Test fit the manifold and valve covers before final install.  Still need to get a new oil pump/distributor shaft.  Ran out of my favorite gasket sealant anyway, spray can of Hylomar blue.  So have those things on order.  A new dipstick & tube coming too, old one is intact but don’t want to use it – same story for valve cover breather caps.

WOOHOO!!!
