I'm a bit distracted with the new van, trying to tie up some loose ends. The back of the engine the trans had a good coat of oil on it so I cleaned it up some the other day to find the leak. I've put new plugs and an air filter in the engine. I have new wires, rotor cap and button but didn't want to put new parts on yet until I was done with the engine(see below). Didn't get a before pic but I did get an after... It still needs another going over. I have new rubber grommets for the PCV valve and the other cap(missing in the photo) and new parts that go in them. I replaced the oil sending unit. Now I have a working oil gauge, Yay! I was expecting the distributor "O" ring as the culprit but I was wrong... Notice the light brown crap in the oil? I had sprayed that area real good with the water hose. Seems, a little too good. I checked the oil and it was milk shake color and way over full! I drained that oil/water mixture out ASAP. Turns out it was only about 1/2 quart of water. I'm glad I only drove it a couple miles. That also explains the noisy lifter in the back of the engine upon startup. I'll put a few miles on this oil/filter and change again. From what I've read, these engines have a tendency for the rear intake gasket to slip and leak. I can see why. I can damn near get my pinky finger under the intake in the back. Edelbrocks installation instructions says to use a 1/4" bead of black silicone instead of the rubber gasket with their intakes. I may go that route. I'm going to do a little more research first. There's some confusion on which intake is on which engine. One intake has larger intake ports then the other. From the info I've gathered, the 360 heads have larger ports and the 318 heads have smaller ports, but until I remove this one all bets are off. Allegedly either will work, but I'd rather have matching port dimensions. There's a four barrel intake sitting in the back of an 83 Dodge van I've been taking parts off of in the junk yard but I don't want to spend $500-$600 on a new Holley 600cfm right now. If it's a match I may grab it next time I go there for future use. In the next few days I'm going to R/R(and clean) the intake and install new Valve guide seals(and clean the valve covers), as it smokes a bit on start up. I have a gas tank grommet and rubber filler tube ordered because the grommet looks rather sketchy. I also replaced the Exhaust from the "Y" pipe back a couple weeks back... I'm still having a slight hesitation when taking off. I could possibly be the fault of the old parts I'm replacing. I'll order a Carb rebuild kit from Mikes Carburetors if it still hesitates after I'm done. Then, I'll start putting the 67's engine back together to get it movable. Stay tuned!
