    Cool - will give it a try clean and dry (fel pro website says the same thing). If it doesn't work, it will leak oil just like it has been doing and like everything else does, so no big deal. Its pretty easy to try again at the next oil change.

    Well finally got things back together and running again....
    While I had things apart on the bottom, I added an adpater so I can run a traditional screw on oil filter cartridge, and got the oil pan on.


    After fighting some distributor issues - the old Accel distributors a friends sent me just seem to not work anymore - I went with the traditional 60s-70's delco distributor with a Pertronix unit in it.


    Fit seems to work in the space (although the cap and rotor have to be removed to put-in or take the unit out....Hopefully with the pertronix unit it won't need much attention. ALso added a new internally resisted coil to simplify some of the wiring and firewall clutter....


    Then made it all legal...

    If you make it to Longmont, you've gone too far to find me. Looking forward to seeing the wagon!
