    Are you saying that the instrument cluster is likely the culprit on the...

    Speedo seemed to work ok but was a little bouncy. Sub sat for almost 4 years before I tore it apart this spring. It did run but I didn't want to push it, knowing it had an issue with the one exhaust...

    I replaced the new lifters and had no change. So after some deep contemplation and rethinking some of...

    No cable, its all linkage to trans. You may be able to disconnect linkage to see if it is in fact in the trans or steering column.

    I saw no “smoking gun” that would keep the lifters from adjusting, although the piston inside was a little difficult to get out of a couple of them. The only thing I can think is that either when...

    I have finally gotten around to pulling one head (drivers side) and all the lifters. (I’ll do the other one later.) I was only able to compress two slightly by hand. The other 8 were rock solid. When...

    Never worked on ‘60s Chev, that sounds like a messy job, yikes! I think you’re right with pulling a lifter. I’m going to wait until it cools off a bit we’re pushing 110. I’ll let you know what I find...

    Ill give it a shot. One more thing, I cranked the motor over for about 25-30 seconds, without the valve covers on. By the time I had pressure at the gauge I only had oil coming out one rocker, the...

    I’m looking at .923 and I didn’t see anything funky when I put the new ones in. I have to admit I didn’t even think to look if they were different sizes. If mine are standard is there an undersized?

    Thanks Grant. I’ve been in contact with Walt. He’s been really helpful. I’ll let you know what I find out. All indications point to the lifters not compressing enough to allow the valves to close.

    It’s a worthwhile question... yes I did.

    I’ve been thinking about it a lot and what has changed during rebuild, considering it did run before I pulled it apart. Only thing I can think is that I...

    I bought them from SSDiesel. As well as the lifters,...

    Here’s the latest:
    Compression with rockers in place:
    Cyl 1,2,3,4,5,7 = 0psi
    Cyl 6,8 = 300+psi (gauge doesn’t go higher than 300)

    I couldn’t get a screwdriver between the valve stem and rocker....

    When I went to check compression I had 0psi on cyl 1. When I pulled the rocker assembly off I got about 180psi. So it appears that my valves are not closing properly. I replaced the push rods rockers...

    I lapped them by hand, in fact I had my kids help. (This has been a Covid project.) So let me know what “too much” is. I’d be surprised if I was there.

    I checked by putting aluminum foil over the intake ports and it seems all are pulling vacuum. So that’s a relief.

    I replaced one head completely and all the exhaust valves only in the other. I...
