Yeah, I hate it when that stuff happens, a good reason for learning it yourself.

Most people sweep their garages. I have to use a rake.

Thinking about it, it will be stain resistant and so much easier to keep clean shiny.

Checking for rear seal leaks.  Had a very small one.  Easy fix.  That's that silicone they give you instead of the 2 tabs for the seal cap.  Dumb idea

Hey, looks pretty good, even shiny, and the black, yeah, that would have been nice in a different color, too. At least these mini-strokes aren't affecting your ability to paint.

OOO OOO OOO, end bolts on the exhaust manifolds should be studs because they like to leak water.

Hey, that looks really pretty, color offset and all that, and those extra bolts in the valve cover corners. Good job.

I'll have it close to runningby the time Leaburn gets here.  I am missing 2 items.  One is the idler assembly for the fan belt and the upper rad hose.  I have a new one,  Everything else is accounted for.  Except for the box of NOS dash parts.  MMMMMMM

Quote from: POLARACO

All 413's were 6 bolt valve Covers.  

Only after mid-year 1962.  The original motor had 4-bolt valve covers which was why I used stock covers instead of chrome or aluminum.

I figured Steve used the 452 heads instead of the stock heads (larger exhaust valve if nothing else), and yes, hardened exhaust seats. Never had a problem with any of the heads, but I like the closed chambers over open chambers (I'm a high compression type of guy, and can still run 87 octane, I showed Steve how to fix the problem).
