      Thats OK Chum. I put the top of the motor on after I dropped in the lifters. smile image

      No push rods yet.......................so the next day a spin the motor up side down to check the oil pan casket. biggrin image

      Rotate the motor back around and hear a CLUNK. I'm thinking what in the H@LL was that. scratchchin image

      Then it hits me..............................no push rods. Luckily only two lifters fellout. banghead image censored image censored image censored image censored image

      So now the top of the motor is off again. hissyfit image But the pushrods are installed now.

      Must of been a blessing in disguise. thumbsup image

      In the Tech Articles on the Pontiac Street Performanc page, it goes in to great length on how to seal a Pontiac motor up. reading image

      Found out that the oil pan cork style gasket seals better than the ribbed rubber one (on the rear main cap) that comes with the gasket set. eye-popping image

      So now the gasket is setting up. It sure does seem like it does make a better seal. Or maybe it's wishful thinking. I will now more tomorrow, as I'm letting it sit over night before I install all the rest of the oil pan and bolts and tighten them up. cool image

      lmao image dam old V8s.. lmao image well, I was able to drill and remove my busted stud in my throttle shaft, didnt damage it, as non to be had, so it was done under extremly mellow, intensely focused attention.tada applause image dam im good. cheerful image If I could have seen the look on your face when you heard the ka thunk duh image stuff happens, its crazy that these auto parts suppliers sell (so called) improved design seals or gaskets to were the good ole fashion stuff works best....I tryed that once piece oil pan gasket on a pontiac V8, ,JUNK! didnt even take it off the stand, dropped the pan, yanked it, and threw away 50 bucks, waste of money they are,keep it old style cork, sprayed with a copper high temp coating. others may like the one piece, i didnt. always use McCord gaskets on my ponti pans. never fel-pro thumbsup image ......anyway,, Carry on Soilder. bitelip image

      BRING ON THE BANDIT RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! applause image applause image applause image

      The car is together and running. Had my buddy tune on the carb on Monday ( 4/9).


      He added two degrees initial timing to it also. And the motor likes it. biggrin image

      It's set at 14 now. Motor seems more responsive, crisper when you hit the throttle.

      Now to swap out the rear. thumbsup image

      Best of all...........................I still have 3 1/2 weeks to go.

      Havent looked under the car yet. ashamed image blush image
