My 352 on a stand. I did use grade 8 hardware.

I am happy with the work they did.
They did repair and testing and then I decided to have it recored.
They put in a new style larger core.
They do good work, in a reasonable time and stand behind it.
The new core wasn’t inexpensive, but I wasn’t expecting it to be.
So far it has been working and cooling well.

The puller screw has to rest against the end of the crankshaft. The factory puller has a conical end which goes in the bolt hole and self centers. If you use washers, just make sure they aren't too big.

Ross is correct about moving the carpet forward. The rear notch which you have against the rear footrest in the picture should be against the front of the front seat frame.

If you don't have access to the J-5992 vibration damper remover, there is an interesting alternative solution shown in this YouTube video.

I put one in my 56. The only issue I had was with the installation. I had to bend the filler neck to make it accessible through the filler door. I have had no problems with the tank since installing it.

All of your pictures are giving not found errors, so this is based on the text.

I assume that your pictures include the compensator you installed and the compensator control/delay switch. I hope you can get them to load so we can see.

What is the time of the porpoise cycle? Is there a delay between cycles or is it constant? The compensator control/delay switch is supposed to provide about a seven second delay to allow for changing conditions.

The 56 compensator gear box has limit switches in it and if it is going all the way up and down, they would seem to be working. The 55 compensator has external limit switches.

How did you wire your limit switches?

Does the car have the manual level switch under the dash?

What happens when the car is parked, does it sit with the front down/rear up, does it level, or does it porpoise?

It sounds like it is not able to identify level. That is a function of the compensator control/delay switch.

Pictures and more information will help.

Sounds like it is time to hook up a gauge to the DirectDrive port and watch the pressure. Also hook up a tachometer as bullish—ter suggested. If you don’t have someone to monitor and record the pressure, rpm, speed and surge, setup a video camera to record the test and look at the data after.

There is nothing special to it.
I replaced every component of the hydraulics, hooked up a power bleeder and the system bled like any other.
