    My son did 90% of the work adjusting the valves. I picked up this handy Mopar Performance sticker that saved me from spinning the engine over by hand a bunch of times. I’m just not sure where in the engine compartment to put it ?

      Stick the decal on the inside of a tool box lid.

      My son and I were able to drop the engine in today. Next I will fabricate serpentine accessory mounts and I needed to make sure everything fits. Also, my clutch came in. Waiting on clutch bolts and a pilot bearing.

      Maybe I didn’t see it in the responses... did you ever figure out the distributor gear situation? Are you running factory or did you have to switch to the bronze or melonized?

      According to IMM, the original gear/drive shaft is just fine so I am reusing it.

      It’s a Comp hydraulic roller with 1.6 Stainless roller rockers. Pretty much IMM put together the combination for what I was looking for
