I just found this posting today and have had a few cups of coffee and a few hours reading it from beginning to end.

Alan, All I can say is, You have one hell of a lot of perseverance my friend...

This is beautiful!!!!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body
But rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming
, “Wow what a ride”[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

I've bee fighting it for a few weeks. It had been parked outside under the tent for the last year at the old house. When I got it here to the new house, I realized I had an oil leak. I thought it was the oil pan, so I changed that. Still had a leak. Thought maybe it was the valve cover gaskets, so I changed them. Still had a leak. Finally traced it to the intake manifold. It was leaking at the back, right above the bell housing. Then it would run down the back of the block and fan out everywhere, making it nearly impossible to track down (other than dumb luck. I found it while working on the accelerator cable). I finally got that intake back on with new gaskets this morning and......

No oil leak YAY!!! Instead it dumped a gallon of coolant on the floor our of the corner of the intake right by cylinder

So now I have it tear it back apart and figure out why it didn't seal right.

I was fed up this morning so I will deal with it next Sunday.

Other than the oil leak it has been running great and I even drove it as a daily for a few weeks while I hunted down a new car.

Geez thats bad. I tore my rear axle apart this weekend to hopefully fix a leak from the housing. I feel your pain. I hate how much of a pain it is to do a rear housing gasket or an intake gasket. You'd think there'd be a super gasket by now that didn't make us have to glob a bead of RTV across the front and rear of the block.

I did. In the end I broke down and bought the ARP manifold stud kit and it sealed right now.

It got really hot here in Houston and the AC just couldn't keep up, so I let it sit too long and when I took it out for a cruise (and a stop at the gas station) about 3 weeks ago I found myself needing a jump to get it started on the way back home. The idiot that jumped me off unhooked the cables form his batter and slapped them together to hand them back to me..... before I had gotten out of the car and unhooked from my side. Sparks flying everywhere and him jumping around like a freaking retard. It fried my distributor and alternator. I've been too discouraged to order new ones yet.

No matter how nice I am to my car, no matter how many gifts I buy it or how much I baby it.... It still insists on being a pan in my rear.

I spent 4 hours today trying to get the timing right after replacing the distributor electronics the problem seems to be that even with the stiffest springs pertronix offers, my mechanical advance is all in by 800 RPM. Either that or I'm getting zero mechanical advance. Despite removing the rotor 11 times today and trying various techniques to try and lock out the mechanical advance, I never got any consistent results.

Maybe next weekend.

That sucks Aj sorry to see that. it looks like a fire, from what? shorted spark plug wire?, or from the ac diverter? I am trying to figure it out from the pics but regardless I am sorry to see that happen to you.
