does anyone have a trick for installing valve stem clips when the engine is still in the car? Working upside down they keep falling out after I seat them when i take the tension off the valve compressor. its a 288 1949

288 valve covers

Here we go again with another stupid question.When installing the valve covers on a 288,do the splash fins go toward the top or bottom?I didnt match mark them, and after bead blast and paint they could go either way because of symmetry.The front and back are easily identified because of the vent tube spigot,but they can still go either way on the block.

I just bought a 1949 deluxe touring sedan with a 288. im getting 85 to 90 lbs in all 8 cylinders.Does this indicate that a rebuild is necessary?I understand that factory compression is around 110.
