    The correct thing to do would have been to stop the car and get it running before descending. Barring that, descending a little at a time allowing the brakes to cool at regular intervals.

    Was it possibly over-reved? The head looks pretty clean. How old is the gas? Varnished gas can coat the valve stem and make the valve stick or close too slowly. Tis means that the rocker will lose...

    I do not have that setup anymore. The picture is of the "stock" Mikuni system.

    "I am thinking of cutting my SU rod and mounting this bellcrank on it "

    You're over thinking this. Just pull the line off of the modulator and stick it into the seafoam. Engine vacuum will pull in the seafoam and it will get distributed evenly enough. YOu will want to...

    You can use DOT5 in a daily driver. I did for the past 10 years with no maintenance. Just pulled the brakes off of that car and the fluid looked brand new.
    One downside to DOT5 is if water gets in...

    1: Get a can of kroil and spray all the flare nuts.
    2: Get a name brand flare nut wrench so you don't round off the flare nuts. If they won't budge after treating with kroil, use a butane torch to...

    Brian,
    Are you sure the oil is coming from between the head and block? Often a valve cover leak will cause oil to accumulate at the head/block interface. There are only 2 tiny places where oil moves...

    If you were me, you'd do a leakdown test to start. It will tell you what's going on or at a minimum remove most possibilities.

    sblake01, Thanks for the link. I had seen that thread, but it doesn't say where he got the evaporator.

    sblake01,
    Thanks. This one was pretty shot. Don't know if a flush would have gotten the rust out, so I don't feel to bad if i've ruined it for good.
