On the flywheel fitting, I was just concerned if it would fit the taper properly. The old VE did not have an generating system in the flywheel, I would bet all they had was an external generator with a distributor on the end of it.
I trusted greygoat on it fitting what I was wondering was how you folks remove a flywheel. I kind of explained how I did it. It was not the recommended method. Was wondering if the recommended method works for you guys.
As for the #1 cylinder that has no compression I looked down the spark plug hole and can see both valves going up and down. I feel there is some stuck rings on the piston I have the engine tilted now with the top of the piston being level with a fair amount of penetrating oil in the cylinder.
