Haven't updated in awhile. I have crappy news! Finally got the engine timed right and had trouble chasing down bad valve adjustments. Finally got all that sorted out, she was purring like a kitten...until a dang rod broke and punched a hole in my nice oil pan. I'm so pissed at myself for not going ahead like I was going to do and have the whole thing rebuilt at a local place here. Being it had such good compression I really thought I could get away with just replacing the bearings and seals and not removing the heads and pistons. Well that bit me! It's not the two or three hundred bucks I've blew its the dang time I have wasted. Well you live and learn. All I'm hoping now is the block is ok. I have a feeling it's not because I saw oil and antifreeze from the oil pan hole. If it's not then there goes the number matching car. Then I guess I'm free to put some more power in it I guess. Very frustrated at myself right now that's for sure.
