Seems to be getting back to normal little by little. Outlining areas still have a lot of debris from what I have been told. Got a buddy who works for the Tx DOT ad they have been really busy helping the City with cleanup.😎

There are two clamps on the rubber connector between (tank filler and Tank ), you`ll need to get those loose, remove seat, unbolt tank and pull out the right side....!

Got the tank in, really wanted to relocate but due to time constraints I don't have the luxury. Now need to find out why it's overheating. Does anyone think that a set of 307 heads would create any issues. I know quite a few of the rockers are loose and chattering.

I would hate to pull a head but I might have too. I know when I tightened the rockers the engine wouldn't start. I basically tightened them all up and then backed off until they would spin in my fingers but when I did do that the engine would not start. As soon as I loosened them all up it fired right up. I wondering is there is an issue with the type of heads that are being used?

Good to hear from you Mark...when you run you`re valves, you need to adjust each one when you are on the compression/firing stroke TDC for each cylinder.. this probably why you were tight on some of them, get yourself a remote starter switch, that way you can turn the engine over ( without starting it) and without having to jump inside to turn it over..do this with all the plugs removed this way you can turn the engine by hand to dial the stroke in...by bumping the remote button until the compression blows your finger from over the hole, then turn the engine back or forth to line it up on the timing mark TDC.

Same here Rich, thanks for your help. So in a nut shell, pull all the plugs and bump the engine until each particular cylinder is all the way up. Then adjust each valve for that cylinder? How do I adjust them? Tighten until they won't spin and then back off until they do?

Do you think that this might be causing my overheating problems?

Correct just ensure that you are on TDC on each cylinder when you adjust both intake and exhaust rocker, slowly adjust til you feel the pushrod has a little resistance, stop..! and yes maladjusted valves can cause overheat issue...have you changed or checked the Thermostat....?

Yes sir, new thermostat,water pump, and clutch fan. So just until the push rod feels like it won't spin, no backing off after that right?
