Any time I put RTV on gaskets I just snug the bolts down and let it set over night. The next day I tightened all of the water pump bolts, timing cover bolts and oil pan bolts.
Oil Pump: I pack the cavity full of petrolium jelly before it put the gears in.

Then I push the gears in and let the petrolium jelly flow around them.

Then I clean off the excess the best I can.

I spray a light coat of copper coat on the gasket before I put the oil pump cover on.
I Bolted the heads on and got a couple coats of paint on it last night. I like to paint them upside down first so that i get paint on the bottom edge of the heads and everywhere else that you can't get to when it is right side up.

Yea, we are using the GMB water pump. I have never had a problem with those. It is usually the re-pop cast iron ones that have the issue.

Any hints on the correct chamfer size for the timing gear



This is 0.07 , the other gear has a .140 chamfer, there was a talk on theamcforum, but no real answer to the better size if any.
As always you are so thoughfull on giving details
Thank you

I measured the two original stock ones and they measure about a .082"/.085" x 45 degree chamfer. That makes the Hypotenuse about .116"/.120".(What you are showing in the picture) Be sure to correct the oil slot from the cam feed hole and the transfer slot to the distributor gear on that one.

The vibration damper had a small groove in it from the seal. It may have been ok but, I went ahead and put a repair sleeve on it.



The oil pump is primed and ready to go.

Thank you, and thank you for the sleeve ref num, this is good to add to the list of various sleeves.

It runs!
Good luck with photobucket - it is giving me fits. Plus, the sound from my cameraphone is not very good. it sounds much nicer in person.
At this point in time (before the video) It has ran for about a hour total with the coolant changed twice and the oil and filter changed once. It has heat cycled at least 6 times. This is the first time I started it at idle. It runs nice. Now change the fuel pump to the new one and change carb and distributor after that. I like to brake them in with known good parts first!

Finally am able to post pictures again... Here is the Bulltear system all bolted on - with no instructions. So of coarse, I have the one idle pulley on upside-down. The only way I figured it out was that I went on line and looked at the picture.


It actually bolted up pretty well, between the spacers that came with the water pump and the Bulltear kit. I only had to add a couple of washers in one spot.


Done and Delivered!
