03-27-2014 04:24 PM Dam that doorman
All the trouble I had with brake line leaks were from
the doorman crap all these local parts houses use.
Including NAPA
From Mortorsports unlimited--Terre Haute IN
I got Allstar fittings which are heavier made
9/16ths nuts instead of 1/2 inch.
All star performance fittings

03-25-2014 12:05 AM Riffle brushes
Word of warning!
The fiber brushes used for oil galleys may not do the job.
I'd advise doing what I did and get riffle bore brushes. Good quality.
I had scrubbed, with hot soap and water, the block twice.
After pounding in freeze plugs & oil galley plugs,
and rotating the block on the stand. I discovered grit and lacquered
oil in the lifter bores.
I used hot soap and water with fiber brushes, not good enough.
After using 30-6 brushes this old petrified oil came out.
Along with more grit from boring and decking.

03-19-2014 02:22 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.
