Installed Valve covers from Ken Arnold on my V-8 Vair. Many Thanks to American Mel for telling me how to reduce the photo so that the forum will accept it. Jim

Well, finally finished the suspension work and have removed the power pack. Started stripping the tin and found it to be in pretty good condition. Compression test was
#1- 110psi
#2- 100psi
#3- 150psi
#4- 165psi
#5- 150psi
#6- 100psi
This engine would have run. Maybe only 3 minutes before it overheated and dropped a valve but it is in very good condition, considering. This engine is factory original, never had the valve covers off. (known history of car).
Here are a couple of pics of what I have found. SO FAR, only twisted off the studs on exhaust logs. Everything else has come apart easily.
