I would do what James suggested above. Get some air filter foam and cut it to fit.

Heads are on

I will finish up the engine this weekend, distributor, water pipes, fuel pump. I will wait on doing the carbs. Start working on the frame next.

The PO said he rebuilt the carbs with a randack kit, but I have to open them up and take a look myself.

The randack website says the carb kit is out of stock. Did they stop making the rebuild kit?? Or is it really just sold out.

Looking good. Now you should acknowledge the man that answered your question about the foam filter. You ignored what he said and asked again and his answer was pointed out twice. I've followed this thread since the beginning and I've noticed you do that quite a bit.

I got an email from Randakk's a while back saying that he was going to be closed for a bit for vacation or something. That might be it.

I really appreciate all the suggestions, advice and encouragement that I get from everyone. I certainly do not mean to ignore anyone. I will make a point to do a much better job in acknowledge everyone trying to help. Thanks for the feedback.

Sorry James. I was reminded that I may have been rude by ignoring your suggestion. I hope you accept my apologies . But your idea gave me a thought. In older Chevy cars there was a crankcase ventilation filter in the snorkel air filters that basically did the same thing this is doing. So Some are on the way. I will cut them up and see if I can make it work. I will keep you informed.

I've said this before, polishing aluminum is so gratifying I did the top of the alternator. Question: i don't see any way to change the timing. Is there?


HELP. While putting the water tubes on the engine, I realized that I am missing a 10x12 collar that goes between the block and the thermostat housing. Hard to believe that I lost it, I have been so meticulous about bagging ad tagging everything. It was probably not there when I took it apart, but no matter, I don't have it. As far as I can tell they are no longer available. I didn't see anything on eBay either. Anyone have any idea where I might get one?

I look at it closely and the o ring seems to be held quite tight. What function does the collar have? If the o ring is set and sealed carefully, will the coolant flow be ok?

Pretty points cover.
You set the timing by rotating the points plate and the sub plate. The service manual has the procedure as well as Randakk's and NGW.
Send me your info and you can have this collar

There shouldn't be anything holding the oring on, the collar slips into the housing then the oring goes over it.

I moved the engine out of the workshop. Still a few things to finish up on it, clean and paint the cam belt covers, polish the valve covers. I love polishing aluminum, but I bet those two covers are going to take a while.

I put the frame in place of the engine. Clean, paint, repeat

I am thinking of changing the steering bearings to conical bearings. THOUGHTS? What bearings should I use. From my research it is All balls, 22-1011. Is that right. Will I be able to remove the existing races and replace with the one in the all balls kit without any modification?
