engine work

Well I finally took the heads off my engine and put the new valve springs in this weekend. thanks for some helpful web sites that i got from the engine forum. never replaced my own valve springs. Got all new parts from Jegs, springs, gaskets etc, almost overnight Fedex great service.
After taking the heads off and the old springs put the new ones then power washed the heads and blew them out, after drying in the sun for a couple of hours painted them with ceramic engine paint on Saturday. Today I cleaned all the old carbon off the valves and chambers then cleaned the cylinder heads and pistons until they looks brand new.
The gaskets from Felpro had an extra coolant hole them that fit my heads but not in the block between the two inner cylinders. Instructions say to mark the hole in the engine and drill it out so i did. Hopefully this will help cool this motor. Adjusted the valves according to instructions torqued everything down and put the intake back on, will finish the rest this week . Also bought a new msd distributor and coil. Not liking the old Mallory. Car show coming up soon and I want to go. Its never ending!!

John long Thanks Guys.

Martha woke up this morning and fixed a pot of coffee. She poured herself a cup and immediately dropped it. For some reason her hand had just gone numb and she could not move it. Her son brought her to the emergency room thinking she was having a stroke but the Dr says no, it was probably a small blood clot.

The feeling and control are back but they are keeping her to run an MRI in the morning.

For now, anyway she seems to be in the clear...Thanks for the prayer and good wishes.

John I have a flywheel an aluminum bell housing and possibly the brackets what do you need P/s and alt ,do you need A/C brackets,
I also have a couple steel bellhousings with the side mounts ,1 with 1 bolt amd 1 with 2 bolts if you decide not to remove your crossmembers,

Everyday I drive by the shop that has offered me a job to get to my crappy job and I feel I'm getting closer to that day. It will come but switching jobs is a huge thing.
Make sure you give your current job a two week notice both that one and the new one will give you a ton of respect for it.

If they don't right now, that's fine, it's the right thing to do.

It would have to be "Not enough Parking Spaces". Selling the Corvair allows one more to move from the outside to indoor storage.

'65-'68 BB engines had short water pump and pulleys/brackets. The alt will have to be on the left with the short pump. You should be able to scrounge original parts but there is always Allen Grove for new if needed. Some pick ups had different offset pulleys, so research the car numbers and look for them.

I have a rebuilt Muncie 4 speed with a brand new shifter I bought years ago just begging to go in this car.

I also agree with you about the allen Grove brackets. I may have some friends who have some of that stuff still around. Time will tell. I may also be able to fabricate some of it.

One more parking space freed up.
I also sold a pair of '67-72 bedsides last week. I have a LOT of other parts to sell now from my 5 year accumulation for the '69 K1500 I sold a couple months ago. Gonna take a lot of digging and cleaning to get them all out in daylight again.
