68 396 rebuild
« on: January 28, 2007, 08:50:31 PM »
Hi,
  I'm getting ready to rebuild my motor. 68 396 / (325 I believe because of the my prefix). I haven't touched it in 21 years.
starting to puff at start-up (valve seals) and i'm pretty sure I have some bent pushrods (mechanic re-tightened 2 times loss of power evident).
  I'm going to attempt a back to orig. restoration. I have the orig.intake #3883948(came in trunk) according to prev. owner.
  Is there some one who will do this around NW Pennsylvania? I know most of the local re-builders and a few that want to do it but I really would like to do this right.
 Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks Jerry. I've checked out your site. I freind of mine claims he saw the back of grumpy's car ;D. I've sent an e-mail. Hope you don't mind helping out!
