  2. Sorry or the lack of updates, I'll try to get updated here. The block was just honed not bored and this was a low mile engine so I had the machine shop check the pistons and  connecting rods and I reused them. I got a re ring kit, cam kit and gasket set  http://www.northernautoparts.com/ProductDetail.cfm?ProductId=3021 I also had the machine shop rebuild the heads. I also got new rocker arm shafts and push rods

    A couple of questions. There was no cam thrust button on this engine when I took the timing cover off, I dont believe there ever was due to no marks or wear on the inside of the case. Where they discontinued at some point around my yr ? (67)

    Also your thoughts on soaking the lifters in oil vs not ? factory service manual says not to soak them.

     

    Thanks

  4. Hey Moses,

     

    I am using a rebuild kit for my drag link. Using your book as well as the factory service manual as a reference, It say the steering gear side of the drag link should have the short plug and the spring between the ball seat and the end plug, however on my Jeep it is reversed, and when I turn it around like your book and the manual says the grease fittings will not be accessible as one will be facing frame and other facing bottom of tub. I know the drag link has never been removed. Any thoughts ?

     

    Original photos before removal.

    I also have 4 of these in the new kit. original only used 2 ?

    New springs are taller than original

    I did a dry fit the way it was originally. Does this look correct ?

  5. Give me a shaft diameter and thread pitch, JohnF.  A photo of the nut and locking hardware would help, too.  I can provide a torque setting, looks similar to a Warn/Saturn overdrive shaft...Let's confirm.  This needs to be tight, we'll see how tight. 

     

    Wow, ZEP is "chemical" all right!  The fine print...

     

    Moses

    The size is 5/8" 18 I don't have the original nut so I had to get a standard nut. It is locked in with a cotter pin. I believe this sprocket pushes against the pto bearing ? will being so tight hurt the bearing ?
