My first use of you tube. Hope this works.

I've built many motors but this one has kicked my butt! Not that it was difficult to put together, just obtaining the correct parts has been a chalange. Thanks to all the help from this forum. It is now wrapped up until I get the chassis restored. I'm hoping for smooth sailing, Bob

Thanks to all, I'm going to run the shorter filter in my original photo thanks to Howard's explanation. Where do I find a copy of the data book? I will check for an orifice.

This is not my car but is the same year. My filter housing looks just like this one. So Dave, I'm unclear about "disposable canister" you mention. Isn't this one?

The wrong type of filter? Are you sure? This car has not been altered that I know of. Bob another photo

As you can see in the photo, the new filter from Kantor is wrong. Or, at least different from the old one. I am anxious so even contemplated bypassing the filter just to hear it run. Maturity set in. What's the info on the filter height difference and wonder if I can buy the new correct one from local auto parts. Thanks, Bob

I can't find where it's supposed to be. Does it really matter? I understand that I need to time the oil pump to the cam to change which tower is used but none of my books designate the "proper" location. Getting ready to start it, Bob

Mine is welded and filed and done! The welder in town laid it in so nice. He was using a big mig welder. I don't figure it'l wear out again, Bob

As you can see in the photo, mine is well worn. A local welding shop has agreed to weld over the worn spot and let me grind to shape. I'm worried that the peg may loosen in the bell housing. Any input? Thanks, Bob

Another important consideration when installing the studs is depth of insertion. You want just enough but not too much thread extending above the head. I measured the head with gasket thickness, added the washer thickness and made a gauge from a block of wood. I then tightened each stud to the same depth. I used Locktite and was quick to install the head and torque the nuts so that the thread locker hadn't dried. Threads on the acorn nut should be lightly oiled to get an accurate torque reading. Bob
