        For real it is my very first slant build and that car is my very first slant ever. It is a learning process. Thank you.

          This is a question about the routing of the heater hose. My car has a heater control valve so that is the reason for this question, is that the hot side or cold side. In other words does it come out of head into heater core then control valve or does it come out of head into control valve then the heater core. Any help. Thanks. I rebuilt the heater box and trying to get heat for the early morning.

          i believe it's valve first

          edit: this is from the 74' SM. they don't show the valve

            Thank you that helps 100%. I looked for hours on the net and just could not find a straight answer. Today is the heater test.

                  This is my solution to having to adjust the rockers every other weekend. I have tried pinching the rocker so the adjuster was tighter. I have tried everything. So I have lots of old rockers laying around so I tried this.

                    Well so far so good on the rocker lock upgrade. We drove 200 miles on Sunday and I have driven two days to works so I am right at 350 miles since Saturday when I did this and by now I would have heard the tic toc of an out of adjustment rocker, or the thump thump at idle from a lame idle. I will check it this weekend just to make sure all is well since I am trying new things........for me at least. If this works the wifey slant six will get it also but she drives here way less than I do since she is a stay at home mommy.

                    I believe I first saw that trick on slant six. org
                    Also I seem to remember longer adj screws available from Comp Cams.

                    Ha ha ha no I am a Crower guy, Those rockers we some take off's that I had. Do you have a link to the Slant six. org? I would like to see what parts they used since I hate getting ANYTHING from Indy Cylinder heads. Those adjusters and nuts were the best fitting set up.

                    Ok Mr. Crower.
                    It's just slantsix.org
                    There is a lot of info there going back many years. You'd probably be interested in the Oil Pump drive gear study that was done. It's in the articles section.

                      In hindsight I think the way it worked out was good. It was nice figuring out what worked and what did not since I drive this car 50 miles aday so data is plentiful. The biggest help was putting one of these heads on the flow bench. This way I could see what this thing would pump and make a cam accordingly. Once that happened the tuning became super easy. I went to the .org place and looked around but, some of the things there just did not work for me at all on my engine. Maybe in different engines they worked but definitely not for me. For instance spark plugs, I told to try the NGK plug with the projected tip "Part number escapes me" but wow that was a popcorn machine with detonation. Now around town it was great but get that thing on the freeway and it was like marbles bouncing around. I checked for true TDC, re-curved the distributor, have a wide band that was running perfect, but the only way to get them to stop was back timing off to "0" and have no more than 20 degrees of timing, even with 91 fuel in it. Now remember this is only for my engine because for everyone else it worked but defiantly not in this slant six. So for me auto-lite 66 with a gap of 0.050" is the ticket. The point of all this is that I enjoyed getting a problem and then fixing it.

                        that's the whole point of any of this. doing something you enjoy. people forget , when these things were new, 91 octane was the crap gas
