Pic's of progress... Lower pulley bolts
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: September 10, 2014, 06:08:03 PM
I decided to get back into the car. I took 2 telescopic magnets and stuck them down through the site holes in the head. Started dragging it towards the hole, when low and behold it stood right up next to the hole. I sucked out the right side magnet and grabbed a long Phillips screwdriver, pushed it and dropped it right back in the hole. The whole project took about 30 seconds!. Ya gotta love it.

  So timing chain is on and lined up nice... rotated the crank to get the 12 O'clock 12 O'clock line up... dropped in the distributor with the rotor shooting at number one. It's actually kinda in between number one and number three. Hope that's right. Had the new seal pressed in the cover, and RTV'd down the gasket. Used my girlfriends bra strap {her idea} to hold the lower timing cover rubber in over night with RTV. Stuck a couple shorty screwdrivers in the holes to keep it stretched outward. {See Pictures} Pulled it off the next day and it was perfect. Didn't wanna loosen the pan bolts... So I got one end in, then stuck a Phillips screwdriver in the other end and right into a block threaded hole... Pushed down like hell and in, and it went... Taped on the bottom half with the rubber mallet.... Installed the bolts and made it up... Installed the timing tape on the balancer.... Cleaned a couple baby burr's off the Original woodruff key and balancer keyway.... Put a little assembly lube on the outside of the hub... a little in the keyway... assembled the balancer installer tool and pressed it on.... Installed the lower pulley with smaller bolts.... put two drops of blue loc on the large bolt and cranked it in and torqued it down... Installed the new matching water pump and original bypass hose with correct clamps. Installed the alternator and wired it up....Installed upper and lower rad hoses...

 This baby is starting to look like an engine again. Just need to button up a couple things like valve covers, Sparkplugs and wires, anti-freeze, air cleaner and she is ready to fire... Hopefully this weekend I will be driving Raquel. My GF named her... Danny

Guys, I have some spectacular news. I talked to my endocrinologist and she informed me that after all my last testing, blood etc. , that my tumor marker count is 1.1 !!!   Grin  Grin  Grin   I went from 29 to 22 at last test. Then we waited 3 months after the Radioactive Iodine treatment and these are the results. WOW, what a huge relief. There is a 34 % chance it can reappear but I am just going to say NO, it's gone or at least nearly gone and that's that... She wanted zero but said she would take a 1 or 2. I am deficient in vitamin D. So I have to take 50,000 units every Sunday for 12 weeks. And my thyroid replacement medicine is too strong and can cause fatigue. So I have to cut that in half every Wed. and Sunday... BIG DEAL... That's all peanuts in comparison to it all. Have to go back every 3 to 6 months for monitoring. But I'm not worried, cause I am a CANCER SURVIVOR BABY!!!... D

Well after about 25 attempts of moving the cam slightly CW and CCW the new timing chain assembly is installed. Pretty tight tolerance getting all 3 bolts in. Cleaned bolts with carb cleaner and dried. Put two drops of blue loc on each thread and installed them and torqued them down.

 NOW the bad news... while checking all the pushrods, one of the lifters got slightly stuck with oil to the bottom of the pushrod and pulled the lifter out and dropped it in the galley. Nobody mentioned twisting while pulling and make sure to pull slow, or is it fast? I can see thru the little rectangular holes in the head, next to the pushrod holes, the lifter laying on it's side. I am done, I closed it all up and put everything away. I have to walk away from it... Danny
