Looks awesome, good luck with the rebuild!

That last header bolt is tricky, I used some needle nose vice grips to put mine on today.

more progress on getting the thing apart. while taking the rockers off i noticed that 3 of the pushrods had damaged or cruched tips on the driverside. other than that evertthing else was good. i did have to cut out the old headers with a saws-all, but everything else came out like butter. oh, and one question; how the f**k do ya remove the dipstick tube? that thing pissed me off. and now for some pics.
some broken pushrods

well theres yer problem!
not so good...
my buddy doin some work

well i brought the heads in to get cleaned and checked, and brought the intake to get the one stripped carb stud hole fixed. they gave me a guess-ta-mit of $130 for everything. now i gotta wait till friday to pay for it and to get a new carb and prolly rebuild my distributer so i can actually have a working tach. anyone else wanna chime in?

Reminds me of the back of my El Camino! :lol: Always full of junk!

Lookin pretty good!

Will the dipstick tube twist at all by hand?

If not, you should be able to get a thin chisel or screwdriver edge under the lip at the base of the dipstick tube. Once you get it out a little ways, just wiggle and twist and it will come out. Maybe try giving it a shot of Deep Creep or whatever penetrating oil you prefer. Luckily, you've got plenty of room in there to work. Just go slow and don't break it off!
