    I am finding pics like this.... My oil fill isn't that tall, but its behind the master now, I am betting they are swapped.... UGH. More work.

    That oil fill is merely an extension. Comes out and goes in similar to the cap.

    That is what I am seeing.... Looks like the PO swapped the valve covers.

    Swapped! Why do you have to remove the accessories to remove the valve covers!? Grrrr. That took way longer than it should have.

    NICE!!! I just recently realized how involved it is to change the belts. That AC compressor is really in there! I think there's 4 bolts on the bottom and 2 on the top and the bolt that moves it to proper tension.

    That adjusting bolt for tension is a real bitch. It was made that way So they don't loosen up.

    Good news is its clean, and looks like the PO adjusted the valves (or popped the rockers off and greased them?)

    [​IMG]

    Flipped around. Much more logical.

    Suspicious!

    One other thing, can I simply plug the heater core connection or do I need to loop them together?

    I run my pcv off that nipple and the brake booster off the nipple/ plug in the #8 intake runner.

    As for your heater core lines. Just use pipe plugs if you don't want to run a heater core.

    Everyone advised me against not running a heater core just in case it ever over heats its an easy way to shed heat over the fan.

    I have two PCV valves!!! One goes from the passenger side valve cover to the carb base like you see there and the other to the tee that attached to the back of the intake and goes to the valley pan. I need to sort it out. Spark arrestor is in place correctly.

    Thanks guys, so that should be PCV Then!
    All the intake runner holes are plugged. I think I should have the boss in my bucket O parts.

    Have had nearly not time in the garage. Got 10 mins yesterday.
    New 10ga feed from the alt to the Starter Solenoid. Feels small.... Now that I look at my go to char after I did it.... I realize its 61amps at full song, swap it or leave it?

    And my new puke tank showed up. Amazingly nice for how cheap it was. Factory one is just huge and hideous. $23 literally in stainless. https://amzn.to/32IcpgR

    Remember that IH used #10 light blue wire for the alternator and battery charge. Undersized by today's standards but did get the job done. Many of the alternators were 37 amp from the factory. I have #10 now with a short run like you. But I'll be eventually swapping it for #6 wire.

    Yes I thought it was a little undersized, but it's short.... I'll swap it out at some point.

    BHC's are the literally impossible to get seated well? I can for the life of me seem to get mine to go all the way on.
