I needed a shower after that trip. I think the grease jumped off the truck onto me.

I worked on it all day and almost all weekend but didn't seem to make as much progress as I wanted to.
My never fails parts guy who I have gone to for the past 30 years got me the wrong timing set. I guess he remembered that I had a 350R in my 51 Merc 25 years ago.
After I pulled the pan to change to a 425 pan and pickup tube I discovered that it had plastic teeth on the cam gear that were pretty old so I want a steel gear in it. I had a heck of a time getting the distributor out but managed to not break it so all is good there.
With the 424 pan bolted on with six bolts for the first trial fit.



This is it coming back out after the first trial fit.
