The engine seems to run fine, no smoke from the exhaust at start up or under load and when I changed the plugs, they all looked good. She idles very smoothly. The rear crankshaft seal was leaking 1,000 miles ago but I've since added a seal conditioner and that seems like it's slowed down a lot. I'll pull 1 or 2 of the push rods tomorrow morning and post what I find. By the way, I've only taken off the driver's side valve cover, maybe I'll take the other one off too. Thanks, Joe
