03-19-2014 01:22 AM What if I whack my thumb with a hammer?
Probably wouldn't help.
Got the answer I didn't want o hear.
The cam may be two weeks off. I've got the crank in the block.
Would like to plug the pistons and rods. But will wait till the cam comes.
No reason to unpack age the block two times, lets keep it clean.
Did modify the original distributor to accept a drill motor to drive the oil pump.
Guess it's hockey and PBR till then.

03-14-2014 05:26 PM thats one way to stop the show
Was going to plug the cam in and plastic guage the crank.
Noooo, had the cam out cleaning it. Noticed the light reflection
looked funny. There's flat spots on the tip of the lobes.
Like the grinder stopped too long, or maybe the blank
was too small to grind this profile. Anyway it's in the mail
going back and a Ford E303 will replace it. Same lift *2 less duration.
On a lighter note, yesterday morn, washed the truch, put on the crome rims.
Ran it down the free way to dry it off. Stopped at the drive in window for a cup of coffee.
The kid doesn't get the lid tight, splash coffee with cream all over my door.*&%$$#
What looks light a reflection is a flat spot you can feel.
You can see the profile in the B&W, second lobe is flat top
