Timing cover seal and HB bolt. LS book says these are a one time use thing. Secret motor mount spacers for pan removal while it's in the car

Kinda cool these motors have a plug for the oil galleys to accommodate oil priming .... trip to HF for the 12.99 Hudson sprayer and one small fitting done!

I just pumped up the sprayer with 2 quarts of oil in it and let it do its thing . I left the oil drain plug out and waited until it was running out pretty good then plugged her up . Easy !

Vairy nice Rod! I so wish I could do and use a Crown set-up, but I need to be able to recline the driver's seat in order to get my Wheelchair in with me. Can't go anywhere w/o my personal chariot. ggg That will be (is?) a ton of fun! Will have to make plans to drop by next time I visit my Sister down there.

Well they can't all be fantastic stories of good things so I'll share my crummy news.

Nice sounding knock who knows... busted piston or a rod let go or ? I'll find out in a few days maybe this weekend .
