I made a typo its a 1960. Oops.

I do not know if I did it(I have rebuilt the Oil Pump twice) or a previous owner did it but the Plate for my
oil pump has one "eyebrow" on it made by one of the gears from previously being set a little too tight. And is why I manually turn it to see if too tight.

Like my old Boss used to say: "play around with it, you may learn something".

You can clean that "eyebrow" off by placing 1200 grit paper on a small piece of glass and move plate on paper until it is gone. Keep plate square on paper. Tape edges of glass to prevent cuts and to hold 1200 paper. I have done a couple already to return them back to good condition.

Just as a follow-up for my own comments, I adjusted the valves but it turned out the main rattle in the car was due to the fan bolts working their way loose. Did a lot of tightening down and things were fine again. I'm just glad I caught it before they came out entirely!

Also keep in mind you are not that far from me if you want a little help. I have a good parts selection so no ordering needed!

I do need to make an appointment with you soon Ken. Maybe I can take a day off work in the next couple of weeks and bring it by. I'll call you soon to get on your schedule. On a side note you met a friend of mine a few weeks ago at a show where you must have had your ultravan. He sent me a text after he talked to you for a bit and I think he showed you a pic of my car...
