How's your motor coming Darrell? I guess I can hijack my own thread!
Its coming. Motors out, on the stand and everything looks good at this point. Clayed the tops of the pistons today and the P to V clearance is about 0.050" Still scratching my head as to how the problem happened. My thinking is the springs may be close to coil binding at above idle or the springs are too leak for the cam. Next will be to have the heads looked over and a new set of springs installed. Then it'll go back together. Cam, lifters, cylinder walls and bearings all look good. Still debating on whether or not to reuse the current cam or go with a solid roller. Time will tell.
I'd like to see you have that car Darrell, know you have a sweet spot for 68's ,might as well have a pair !
Yes I do have a soft spot for the 8's. Especially the early Z's with the 302 emblems but I still would love to have this one as well. Maybe down the road once I finish the red car then I can start the search for another one. Little lady wants a 55 or 57 first though.. Trying to convince her that 55's are the better of the 2. Not to mention on favorite tri-5.
Darrell not only does "the picture taker need to be fried" they also listed the exterior color as BLACK....
Shouldnt that equal a 5K discount for incorrect info..??..
