    14,000 miles, on the way to work today. XD

    The only reason I’m not tearing it apart for that very reason, is mostly that I’ve already done 10k miles, with no issues, on top of how perfect it feels now.

    Sorted all that in time to leave for work, and had another (hopefully final) development. This one came in two parts. 1) valve adjustment was still not quite right, so the engine was not quite running right at full temperature. I had not gotten it all the way hot yet. 2) left for work and went right back home believing the valves to be severely out of whack, only to find them needing very very minor adjustment. BUT my trans has almost completely uncoupled from the engine!!!!! tightening that down proper, and now she cruises smooth as glass. I’m starting to wonder how long those bolts have been walking out.... and seriously doubting the “all original” status bragged so solidly to me when I first looked at it.

    But the fun didn’t stop there. When i I went to test the valve adjustment, both, YES BOTH, motor mounts decided to split. AT THE SAME DAMN TIME. This, resulted in tossing my engine like a toy against the right wall of the engine bay.... terrifying. No further damage was encurred, but it was certainly a heart attack I could have done without. Fairly easy replacement though. Set the jack under the oil pan, and lift the engine off the old mounts, take em off, and bolt on new ones. $16 later, perfecto.

    Aaaaaaalright. So. Lifters are a no go for now. The refrence material I was using was mistaken. For the old inline 200 cubic inch fords, you have to pull the head to swap the lifters. On some of the larger displacement models, the pushrod ports are bored large enough to do this without pulling the head off the block.... so, not happening till later in the summer. However. I was able to get two more of the three remaining valve stem seals replaced. On the #1 cylinder. #6 exhaust valve still needs it, but the clips won’t release. After an hour of fighting it, I moved on. It’s not a huge problem. Just mild oil consumption.

    It’s always come through impeccably clean. It burns badly cuz I still need to replace two valve stem seals, but that’ll be when we get warmer weather.

    Just did the oil change this morning too. Everything came out clean. Black as hey, but no shines. This engine continues to impress me.

    This has been at a pretty solid stand still for a little while... since is developed a small ticking in the clutch,I started driving the Mustang to work. And that has needed some attention from sitting for ) months undriven.... nothing document worthy, but time consuming. But, fear not, there are more bits coming for this in the near ish future.
