Re: Cam shaft

What are the numbers cast into the ends of the cylinder heads? That's another big piece of the engine I.D. puzzle.

Re: Help on how to remove ....

A flat right angle carpenter's "Wonder bar" also works great. I have a smaller one in plastic for wiper arms and exterior moldings. Plus you already have a non-marring pad in place

Re: Connecting Rod Removal

If reusing, some go as far as to insure the rod nut go back on the same direction as they were. They're worried about threads being stretched one way, then the other. :dontknow:

I would start with items 15 and 18. 18 can be repaired by welding the holes shut and redrilling. Although the drill size is a bit strange. I also weld the pin solid in the coupler to take out that sloop.
