The nice rebuilt "Cruiser" heads in place, with the original valvetrains. New lifters on the new camshaft of course and also new pushrods to replace the tired 40 year old ones.
At this point I thought something was very wrong. When I turned the engine over I could feel it "binding" at a certain point of rotation. That feeling! I could not believe it and just went inside the coach to watch Junior play a hockey match online. After the game my head was working againg,and I found straight away one of the bolts on the flex plate was scraping on the engine stand. What a relief!
