    Beautiful distributor-

    Same with the Smog pump, putting all new bearings inside -including the bonded bearing - you have to cut them out with a carbide or a diamond wheel - -- they are a PITA. Also picked up a REAL 458 pulley, the difference in weight is crazy compared to a REPRO...

    I plated the lid and bale They sent everything back painted cast blast

    Those original '458 pulleys are great but cost a ton. Folks are wanting a grand for them now!

    The repops are very close especially when trued up. Pick your battles!;)

    Is the bale on the MC zinc plated? Thought they were natural unplated?

    The bale had plating on it, there were a few plated areas left, indicated by fizzing in a few small areas when dunked into muriatic acid solution.

    Pressed the bearings into place for the smog pump - rebuilt 3 at one time.

    Glued the front bearing into place after grinding a couple of rings around the outside.
    I filled the rings on the case with epoxy and then filled the grooves I cut into the bearings - then they pressed into place.
    FWIW -- To get the injected material out of the two grooves in the Smog Pump Case I used a 1" rotary wheel with 1/16 thick abrasive wheel which would get into the rings where the epoxy glue was injected (when you grind it, it smells like panel bond material)

    It is against my religion to pay $1000 for a smog pulley... If you keep a keen eye out they can be found for 250-350. YOU HAVE TO BE ACTIVELY WATCHING AND IMMEDIATELY JUMP ON IT.

    Installed Joey's exhaust system... I have to say it looks super nice up under there, I did use some NOS offwhite exhaust donuts we had in our supply though.. ;)

    Your exhaust system and progress looks awesome. I purchased Joey Gray's exhaust system for my 74Z28 and will be installing it later this year. What ton are your jack stands? 12 ton?
