Rick and I worked through all the lifters today. I was disassembly and cleaning and he was inspection and assembly. Two lifters failed inspection. Had to get two new SBC lifters to complete installation. Everything is put back together except lower shrouds. Will do them next time I get back to the car.

Between appointments and winterizing the RV for the 20 degree temps we are having tomorrow night, looks like tomorrow is filled up. RV is being used Friday so use of water system anti-freeze is not planned. I have got 9 sheets of 3/4" Styrofoam to surround RV. Some green rail stakes and rope should keep the RV snug. There will be a heater placed under the RV to keep the freeze out from under the RV.

Engine was fully reassembled last Thursday with quiet mufflers. Harley mufflers are removed for now.

A quick run showed it to be quieter but still needs to run more before adjusting rockers to quiet the lifters. Valve covers with holes for rocker adjusting are ready to go on before next run. Hopefully will do that soon. I want to get its new home prepared for the engine first.

Installed lifter adjustment valve covers today. Rounded up all the parts needed to remove torque convertor and flex plate to install a flywheel spacer, a flywheel and a pressure plate. This will all be done tomorrow about lunch time. A run will be done then to see if the unusual rattle at idle we noted on previous runs has disappeared. We weren't concerned about it as we wanted to get the big issue with the lifters solved first.

Probably could of had a better video, but I was in a bit of a hurry as the right valve cover was leaking.

End result after that run, I fixed the leaking cover tightened the belt slightly. We started it up again. No rattles, thumps, knocks or clatter form the engine. Carbs were adjusted for the final time. Lifters are all pumped up so no further adjustments are necessary. Time to install valve covers and leak check. Oil and filter will be changed before the run. This leak check run will run about an hour. Previous runs have been 5 minutes to 15 minutes.

I will need to put a small filter on the vacuum gage line as it is too sensitive to the manifold vacuum fluctuations.

As a followup to installing a flywheel spacer, flywheel, and pressure plate in that order on an engine with a PG bell housing. If you are using a piece of the differential where the starter mounts as part of your setup, be aware. You must put 1/8 thick washers between the starter and the differential plate. Without them, the ring gear teeth will contact the starter drive gear teeth. Makes a heck of a screech when they make contact. They didn't make contact all the way around on my engine just about 30% sporadically around the ring gear. Unnerving when you hear it on start up.

Washers are required because flywheel spacer is in position ahead of the flywheel forcing flywheel and pressure plate further out towards starter.

More work done on the new home.

Continued with the new 10 gauge headlight wire installation. It is in a red protective tube and ran through the tunnel and out to the battery. It is ty-rapped to adjacent wire harness and clips. Next is to penetrate trunk firewall and install grommet for wire to run trough. Tomorrow hopefully.

Removed instrument panel (left steering wheel installed) to allow shifter cable removal. Powerglide shifter cable removed. New cable routed and hooked up to shifter lever.

Replaced broken lower door hinge.

Installed horn relay. Installed rubber protector over screw threads to prevent trunk harness damage due to close proximity.

Cleaned and painted tunnel main cover panel exterior surface.

Left the car in a bit of a hurry. Heavy rains today when we were leaving AND Donna got back home. I'll get some tunnel photos and rear area photos of the wiring tomorrow when I get back there tomorrow.

Here are the photos where I got the instrument panel out without removing steering wheel.

Back to the engine. Distributor was not operating right. All attributed to points plate. Took out plate and took parts off it. Though plate was clean, it was stiff to move on its little button sliders. Used 1200 grit to clean metal and sliders. Applied light grease to slidinging points. Plate works properly now.

Ran engine again with repaired distributor and could not get a good idle. If we got an idle, then we had manifold pressure applied to the vacuum advance. Throttle plates open too far, of course. We will install another set of carbs as we believe the idle circuits may be dirty. Don't know how as I made sure all passages were clean. These carbs are the original carbs that came with the car and were difficult to get an idle prior to rebuild.

Installed original valve covers prior to run. Now we have a leak fro left cover. We will replace gasket before next run.

These things on the car and engine have been done over the past 3 days. Been busy. I was also restricted following my electrical treatment to deadening the nerves in my back to eliminate the pain. So far the pain has subsided in the least. The back still hurts from the 8 probes the Dr. Put in it.

This evening, we mounted a 66 A.I.R. carb in the left position and ran the engine. after it was setup, the most vacuum at idle was 3 in.hg. The right was still pulling vacuum advance +10 in.hg.

We changed the right carb and now it too had low vacuum at idle. So changing the carbs with a set I built in June was a good call. This set of carbs was my first set to rebuild, the ones coming off was the second set I rebuilt. Something is definitely wrong inside the carbs that I did not find during the rebuild.

We could not run the engine long as we had developed a fuel leak at the junction where the right fuel line connected to the junction. I have to get that fixed tomorrow.

We built up a starter up with new drive and solenoid today for this engine. It was cleaned, inspected and lubricated as necessary also. So basically most items we could touch on the engine package has been touched and looked at.

Cleaned up 4 T-fittings an 2 carb fittings to pick the best of the lot for fixing the engine fuel leak. Replaced left carb inlet fitting and lines T-fitting. Installed original left carb line. Pressurized lines and left line still leaked at T-fitting. Removed line and installed an old line I saved from a dismantled car. Pressurized lines and leak was cured.

Installed rubber valve cover gaskets as cork & nitrile gasket on left cover had a slow leak. Ran engine with lower shroud off and confirmed no further leak.

Engine was operated for 30 minutes at various RPM settings. No issues arose. Idle was et at 800. Final carb adjustments will be done on Monday.

Moved the coil off the engine and onto the stand. This will be the configuration in the car also. Coil will be mounted vertically to right of vertical brace on rear structure. Installed bolt in place of stud to secure engine aft tin. Slot for coil bracket tab was opened up slightly and a nutsert was installed with a bolt.

Working on getting some Dorman 47413 elbows for the vacuum advance line to make a cleaner install.
