Thanks guys, got em all to .018.  When  I get it running, I'm going to let it go for 20 min or so and then do them again hot and I should be set for a while.

Yea I'm torn on using the cork end gaskets or just laying down a whole bead of silicone.  The last time I did this engine I used the rubber end gaskets with a little silicone and when I took off the intake for this recent event, they were all twisted and shredded.

Also before I put my intake on it has been recommended to put a little silicone around the water jackets. I am using Felpro print-o-seal gaskets with the blue trim around the ports on a black gasket.  It has some of the blue around the water jackets as well.  Is it still ok to put some silicone around the water jackets on this gasket?

So .018?

I get nothing on the mac stick except all sorts of Apple stuff.  The cam was already broken in, I had a few thousand on the engine when I had to do the tear-down.  I found this one.  I assume that will work?

Just got most of my engine put back together and before I put the intake on I want to adjust valves.  I don't have the 30-30, I have a Comp xs282s.  When I degree'd the cam I noticed that the lifter stayed at 0 lift for quite a while.  Can I adjust the valve clearance at any point on this 0 lift?  Also clearance is listed as .016.  I assume this is hot.  If it is, what do I set it to for now?

The one I have is 8F27.  I need an April or very early May one.

How about the 814 from '68 ? I've been chasing one for years - prices keep getting somewhere just above stratospheric and below sub orbital - I've nearly thrown in the towel.

I too had/have been looking quite a while.  I found one that needed rebuilding fairly reasonably priced, but it was the wrong date for my car.  So if anyone finds a date that's good for my car, I'd be willing to swap mine if that date works.

I think it's an "E" clip.

Lloyd, those look like some bolts I've seen on my 68.  I just can't remember where.

I used Abbott for my temp gauge.  The restored it with NOS guts.  They do a lot of concours stuff.

I've seen you there and talked to you about 2 or 3 years ago.  I had my 68Z British green there.  Was a real warm day.

Does anyone know the guy with the blue 68 RS in the first picture?  I thought I saw that car at Papa's Toys a few years back.

There was some discussion about the bolt on the next subject down on this page, "Restoration Help".
