04-12-2014 07:10 PM Ufda got oil everywhere
And I'm a happy camper!
It's tough being a FNG, having to sweat this stuff.
1/2 inch corded drill motor had plenty of power to
oil her up, and a 1/2 rev. to check for sure.
Even got oil on the floor, surprised how much oil will run out over the end
of the rockers. When I pulled the- pump dizzy- out it was soaked in oil too.
So I know the timing case has oil.
It's kind of like the info you get on flight 370, there's so many zigs and zags,
I'm cautiously optimistic about this thing working.

Now it's time to fit this chebby trany- more sweat I guess.
Hockey and suds time- it's Saturday night.

04-09-2014 08:58 PM What the ........
Stopped again
Got the new Melling oil pump in, some nervousness
over the length of the hex rod. Pertronix was right on it,
no prob with standard flow pump.
Used some sillycone on my one piece "Garenteed" oil pan gasket, at the corners and hump.
Had to stop short of priming the oiling system, seems I've got some
oil pan bolts holding out some where. More comming from Summit
with other do dads.
Run oil through it tomorrow then set the new dizzy.
Almost time to fit the chebby tranny- that should be a treet.
DIZZY finally figured out what that word meant- you car guys are funny.

it appears the only gasket I forgot so far was the oil pan
yesterday got that and a water pump, slapped a little paint on.
this morning the push rods showed up.
install same with rockers also harmonic balancer.
When it came time to get the balancer on I realized no timing pointer.
$50 bucks and two hours time I'll never get back.
Need to get the oil pan on and prime the system.
Time to figure out the distributor and static timing.
