As I told Lea tonight. . .
 
It's either that or I get a 318 someplace for free.  I don't want to punt any more money into it

Nah Stan, This stuff is used on race engines.....besides at the rate that Steve finds stuff, it could tide him over until another 318 falls in his lap



Then again.....a 276 DeSoto Hemi in a 5th Ave sounds kinda neat.......

Ceramic Engine Seal
 
Caution: Never remove radiator cap  when engine is hot and under pressure.  Open petcock slowly to relieve pressure, and then close. Now, take off radiator cap.
 
In any application, the cooling system should be cleaned, then flushed and refilled with clear water before adding Moroso Ceramic Engine Seal.  Note:  Moroso Ceramic Engine Seal will not work in a cooling system containing anti-freeze/coolant.
 
Directions
 
Race Cars:  (1) SHAKE BOTTLE WELL AND POUR SEAL INTO RADIATOR WITH ENGINE RUNNING AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE. (2) Wash filler area, replace cap and run for at least 15 minutes. (3) If still no seal, add another pint of Seal and run for another 15 minutes.  If leak still continues, chances are a chemical sealer will not work.  (4) In any case, do not leave Moroso Ceramic Engine Seal in the Engine more than 24 hours. (5) Before the 24 hour period is up, the cooling system should be drained and flushed as follows:  Open petcock and start to drain system. Remove radiator cap.  Using a hose, add water to keep radiator full with petcock draining.  Start engine and allow to drain until water runs clear.  Close petcock and refill with clear water.
 
Tow Vehicle or Street Applications:  (a) To a cleaned and flushed cooling system, add one bottle of Moroso Ceramic Engine Seal (as in (1) under Race Cars above).  Leave radiator cap off until Seal is well mixed.  (b) Wash filler area and replace cap. (c) Allow mixture to circulate for one day of average driving, then before the 24 hour period is up, drain the system and let stand overnight to “set”.  (d) Then, refill with water and anti-freeze/coolant.
FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY.
CAUTION
 
Avoid contact with eyes or skin.  Do not take internally.  If splashed on skin, wash off with cool water.  If splashed in eyes, flush thoroughly for 15 minutes with cool water.  Consult a physician.  If taken internally, give 3 or 4 glasses of water or milk.  DO NOT induce vomiting.  Call a physician immediately.

This has been knawing at me all day.
 
You know how you mull things over in your mind when they don't go right?
 
It dawned on me I was sneaking away from my work to get this thing running.  Well in the middle of torquing down the heads, it is possible I missed the lower head bolt between 6 and 8. 
 
Either tonight after dinner, or tomorrow between the rain drops, I am going to check the head torque again.
 
Man I hate getting old. . . .

Well, , I too was thinking.  Kept me up a few
nights worring about it. So, to check to make sure, I had to pull the
crank and, YEP, I was right, I installed the rear main seal backwards. 
Good thing I checked.



Measure twice.  Cut once.

or something like that...
