I guess you do. Second and third are supposed to be syncronized in mine. First is not.

From what the book shows, it is not too bad. Getting parts (and affording them) may be a different story.

I am soooooo used to tearing into automatics. My earliest memories of workiing on cars was the valve bodies looking like a bed of worms.

Dang Vince! And to think I called you the Vincinator. You do know that was a compliment, right?

Latest photo, the engine is painted and partially assembled. The color is altered slightly by the flash, I think it was a little darker in person.

I'm really not a mechanic, I wear a three piece suit, and sit in a cubicle while answering tech questions like them guys on the hotline!

We the willing - lead by the unknowing - are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much for so long with so little that we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

Brian, this is what they painted it with. As you can see, the camera flash altered the color somewhat -- from what I remember, it is close to the Duplicolor color in person, and this is supposed to be a good match for the factory color. Well, one of the colors - -supposedly 1950 pickup flatheads could be bronze or red also.

Thanks Jeff. I thought there was a green color on some of the old flatheads.

Mine was Yellow and black originally. I can still see a few flecks of yellow on it. All the black was replaced with chrome probably 30 years ago. You know what rusty old chrome looks like? LOL
