But it is old and crusty, linkages all move nice, other then the stuck metering blocks it looks OK, I ordered a rebuild kit today, will bring to the shop tommorow and soak it till Friday, then rebuild it over the weekend. My rockers came in today, I finally got a tracking number for my heads so they may show up Fri or Mon, I still need intake gaskets, and exhaust gaskets, and once I get the heads on will measure for pushrods, if i get lucky and need +.100 like pro-filer tells me then i have a set here, and if not will have to order. Oh and head bolts, keep forgetting those and it irratates me spending 100$ bucks on them lol....ah well. I got lucky and picked up a brand new perf rpm still in the box for $100 bucks, so I can shelve the grungy used one i have. That's about it, I have the front suspension out now as I trimmed a quarter coil off the front on Sunday, then it got cold here again so i haven't put it back together yet. So should be a busy weekend if it warms up....yes, I know im rambling....haven't had much car talk lately and I'm getting excited to get it all together......
