Well we finally got the 51 back together after our engine rebuild! Boy does she sound pretty! The whole process went pretty smoothly! After a couple days working on the head we got it ground enough so the pistons don"t hit. Do those gaskets take some time to seal up. Like the timing cover gasket? I noticed some oil was leaking I believe from the front cover. Not a bad leak and it may have even stopped. Did not use gasket sealer on the gaskets, just on the edges by the rope seals. I imagine it takes a bit of running to get the rope seals to seal? Bought a timing light and got the timing set pretty darn close to perfect. We did install an EI on it. A little paint sometime in the future and getting my new tires installed and she will be a beauty! Can"t get the short pin out of the rocker on the back to insert the long pin that is supposed to be there. Tried heating it several times with map gas and no such luck. Any way to get that out? Thanks for all the help in this journey!
