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
