about 5 hours including paint, machining, and fab. i did it mostly on lunch breaks and stayed after a few days. so if i did it all in one day it woukd probably take at least one hour less.

ok update.
i got all the hard stuff done. everything is set. i ended up with about .009 backlash and a perfect wear pattern. so everything should be good to go. i do still need to clip the axles in though.

i forgot to get some new bolts for the cover. im gonna use some grade 8 socket allen heads. the welds are pretty close to the holes, so i wanna be sure they work good. so tomorow i can button up this project and hopefully i can take her for a spin.

oh yeah. i forgot to mention. the axle tubes just so happens to be the same exact color as someones car i know.

Duplicolor engine enamel. The high heat stuff with ceramic in it. I had some left over from doing my accessory brackets. So that means total build cost is still at 25$.

Yeah, they were the shiznit back then here too. We had one guy who had his way up there and he had painted his entire rear end florescent orange. Made me laugh every time I saw it.
I had a 67 Galaxie 500 XL in high school and they came with a panhard bar on the rear end, so I couldn't lift it much or it would pull the rear end sideways.

My dad had a 71 grand prix with air shocks and...meh.
The only cars I've really ever liked being jacked up were old 50's chevy shoebox gassers
The willy's ain't bad either but the chevy's are just awesome!..
Gassers and rat rods are my favs

Well cancel gopro round 2
When I fired it up I heard some noise in one of my valve covers. Everything looks good, but the rockers may have loosened up a bit.Hopefully that's all.

The last time I drove her I abused the snot out of it.she saw 6500 quite a few times. Maybe I didn't even have rear end issues, idk. Maybe it was the rockers the whole time. It really sounded like the rear and I did find those minor problens I mentioned. But who knows.

I also found another burned up wire. No biggie. Its number 4. It burned up before and I shortened it and crimped a new end on it. So it was a little short. I wonder how long it was like that...

I'm still keeping my head up to go to the track. I will slap another wire on it and reset the rockers. But I'm done Farting around today.

I hate when stupid things get in the way. In the beginning of the summer I finished the 2 year resto of my fox. I washed it, took some pictures and went for a cruise. Within 10 miles my trans would not shift, determined that night that it had to be the clutch. I had to wait another week for the clutch. The following weekend I got it installed and got to go for my long awaited cruise! But now I realize that I think I enjoyed working on the car more than anything lol

So when I pulled my valve covers all the rockers were loose.
I went through the HO firing order and tightened them back up. When I got back to zero they were all loose again. I know I did the proper procedure. I have done it many times. Yes I used the right firing order.

I have let the car sit for way longer times than that and never needed to prime the lifters. Is this the problem though? Should I put the valve covers back on and hope they prime (a little scary?). Or did my stock lifters get mad at me and take a chit? I don't see that many lifters going bad at once. So the only thing I can think of is they lost prime.

The question is should I pull the dizzy. Put in my old dizzy to prime the lifters, then reset the rockers?

Yes I did it right. What I did was:
Btw I have pedastool scorpion rrs. With polylocks

Find 0* tdc on compression stroke. Use my finger over the hole and verified the dizzy was pointing at 1.

But I tighten the the nut until 0 lash. I find 0 lash by tightening the nut until I can't roll the pushrod in my fingers.

Then I tighten the nut another 1/2-3/4 turn. Then tighten set screw.

Then turn the crank exactly 1/4 turn in the HO firing order. I know the firing order by heart. But still used the book and verified by the wire order on dizzy.

Then I repeated until back at 0*

Just saying that I know I did it right. If I saw my first post by someone I would probably say "you sure you used the right firing order" haha

I'm sure.
I'm always working on this beast, so just on this motor I have tightened these rockers quite a few times. And never had this issue. Even if I was on the wrong firing order 1 and 6 would be good. Because they are in the same spot for HO and non HO orders.

Sometimes roller rockers(adjustables) can be a nightmare, I've thought of getting a set but I'm still unsure

Sounds like the lifters are bleeding off.
Are they old?
