can you clay the pickup? just put something over the scree so you dont get clay in it. then bolt the pan up. then take it off and measure the clay. i dont think clearance is an exact science but if its to close you may not flow good.

i have a feeling these guys still might think its worth pulling the pistons just to be sure to. you are already this far. but check your clearance and see what the other guys think to.

Really, pull the pistons even with decent compression? I'll do whatever at this point but I was hoping not to pull my heads again.

maybe not, since you have good compression. i would think the rings are sealed if the compression is good. im guessing trojan may have a good diagnoses with your new imformation.

the only thing that still confuses me is how much oil you had in the intake. i just am not sure if that could or could not happen from the lifter.

Use some Play Doh to check your pickup screen clearance and that 1/4" I typed into the PM I sent was supposed to be 1/2" to 3/8".
I set mine at 3/8" from the bottom of the pan to the edge of the screen as the screen itself is usually a bit higher.

Sorry guys. Zonked out from pain and nerve meds.
I put off taking that stuff until I just can't stand the pain any longer, because 30-45 minutes after I do, I usually crash.

I hope I answered your questions in the PM?

Thanks Jay I appreciate your concern.
It's not pleasant to say the least. What bothers me the most is the loss of strength and most of the use of my right arm/hand. Without it, working on my ride is going to be difficult, but I will persevere!

Yeah, that's an issue for all of us hard core Fox Body fans.
I have my nephews lined up to do the heavy lifting and wrench pulling, if they can stand dealing with my obsessiveness in getting everything perfect that is.
