Can end up with a locked up lifter plunger and no cylinder compression
The lifters fill all by them selfs very quickly on engine start up.
Just coat the foot with moly paste oil up the rest of it and drop them in.

Be sure to oil up the rocker arms too.

Dipping the roller wheel end of roller lifters in oil and letting the oil soak in to the roller bearing is good stuff but filling the internal cavity in the lifter is not.

You can soak your roller rocker arms in oil to your hearts content.
Ok just ended up ordering a new timing gasket and cover with 10 new screws. And the bottom gasket of the timing cover.... my question is what seal or gasket filler maker do I use for the timing cover, also what sealant do I use for the fuel pump, water pump, intake manifold if different...

Got the gasket in today, bought some high temp silicone for the extra seal...pretty fine with putting everything back together

just worried about the distributor hook up and lining up right to start up, tdc is reached (#1 piston is TDC....) also before I took out the distributor I labeled number 1-8 spark plug points on the distributor

My question is I'm reading that cam at 6oclock and crank at 12 is really #6 TDC, so I also read I have to turn the crank 360 degrees clockwise.... In order to get it to #1 TDC so what way is the distributor really supposed to be at when I install it, in order for the motor to start... And since I am breaking in the cam, do I set the timing while I have the motor rev at 2000-2500rpm or fix the timing after the camps broken in.....HELP new to this, but getting threw most of it easy

When the dots on the cam and crank gear are at 6 and 12 oclock ( for installing the cam gear and chain) this is TDC #6 cylinder.

Rotate the crank 1 turn. Cam and crank gear dots are now at 12 and 12/ oclock. This is TDC #1.
Now you can install the distributor so the rotor points to #1 plug wire on the cap.

305 HO heads on a 350???

Hi, guys this is my 1st post on here and I have a Question. I just got a set of 305 HO heads: 14014416 and #624. They are good heads but I would like to know if they will work on a 350 bored 40 over with flat tops. Also need the best street cam and lifters for it. The motor is going in my 1927 model A Rat Rod so it is just a cruiser not a racer. It has 373s in the rearend and a 2 speed power glide trans and we drive it on the hiway quite a bit. Like I said its not a race car just a strong cruiser. All your ideas are greatly appreciated!! Chasman

These heads will work well. But MUCH better if you port them before installing them.
To increase air flow.
if you actually want horsepower. Porting and larger 1.94x 1.60 valves make a big difference.
Then they work real good.

If you just bolt them on in stock as cast form keep your expectations modest.


Cam: Isky 270H Mega cam 201271 (108LSA)
Isky hyd lifters isKy 205D springs. the exhaust spring seats are deeper and will need extra shimming if/when you eliminate
the OEM exhaust rotators. To get the correct installed height.

use champion RV8c plugs 34 to 36deg timing @ max advance. watch for excessive advance and excessive vacuum advance.
Its up to you to dial in the distributor curve correctly.
Dual plane hi rise RPM style intake 750cfm carb.
87 octane probabily-most likely will not work. but 92 will.
