Man I feel your pain. I've chased just about everything and fixed nothing but hey, its hotrodding right. We do in a day what most can't do in a week. Keep your spirits up! By that I mean Jack, Lord or Crown. Lol. Really, you have a wonderful build and I wish I had the talent to out a machine together like you have. Thanks for sharing your story with us.Cam is a hydraulic roller with 0.608"/0.608", firstname.lastname@example.org", and 109LSA advanced to 104. I'd like to go significantly bigger but I just can't stand to lose the manners that this car has.
On a down note, after all of that work pulling the engine to fix the rear pan seal, I used Right Stuff instead of a rear seal. Everything went together flawlessly. Put her back in and went for a ride and it leaks just as bad from the exact same location. I can see the oil seeping between the pan and the Right Stuff. I didn't like the consistency of that stuff when I applied it and I should have just used Ultra Black like I did on the intake. The Right Stuff seems more like a foam than it does a silicone. And the stuff isn't cheap at all. I have yet to get the rear of this custom pan to seal. I am about to use a stock Eldorado pan or buy the $500 aluminum pan. One helluva thing to have to do to fix a leak but I'm fed up with pulling the engine for this reason. The pan is coated with zinc or cadmium or something. I scuffed it good and everything was cleaned two or three times with brake cleaner. ridiculous really
