Okay hold up!

Gary,

I just heard something very disturbing about your homeland. So, does swooping season actually exist!? For all of us uneducated Americans, swooping season is where magpies try to tear out your eyeballs for your only crime of minding your own business. Also, Gary is from Australia for those who aren't in the know.

While we wait for Gary's response. I bought some stainless 1/4"-20 screws to use for my carb. I also used BUNA O-rings from an AC kit I used for my truck. Together, the new screws and the BUNA rings should seal that puppy up! What's nice is there is a recess in the bowl where the screw heads usually go, the BUNA gets squished until the heads hit the top of this recess. It's like it was meant to be. Hopefully no more leaky carb.

I do plan on using the MC 2150 I got with black Betty someday. That carb should get me just about the right cfm and the good angles I need.

Speaking of ol Betty, she's back together minus the accessories, which I'll be keeping. I'm ready for an exchange.

I know it's dreaming big, but maybe I'll get lucky and find a smashed up grand wagoneer with a solid, running 401 in it in Carson city pick n pull

I forgot to mention. I pulled Betty's other head (odd # cylinder head) and looked at the cylinder walls. There is a tiny amount of flash rusting in the #1 cylinder, but the other 3 look cherry. So in reality, if it wasn't for the slight scarring on the #2 cylinder, I could hone and re-ring with new cam bearings and cam set. However, #2 took a #2 on this motor. Also, can you tell which valve stuck and bent a pushrod?

Currently at the cc pick n pull. I have four options, and none have body damage. It's time for some homework

Sorry folks for tardiness. Yes that's correct, when the Maggie's have chicks in their nests they get major protective and dive bomb anything that comes near. I bet there's a YouTube video of people waving their arms above their heads in known hot spots for seemingly no good reason. They look like fruit loops! Hilarious as long as no one gets hurt.
Heard one story of a little girl complaining of a sore eye after playing in the park and actually she had been stabbed by a magpie. Poor kid lost that eye.

You prolly saw it before but this will make it into my 7 one day. Since we name our engines I'll call it Trevor. Maybe.

Wow! I can't believe its true. So are magpies protected in Australia like in the US? Cause I could see me with a tennis racket shooting birds into space like Serena Williams.

Nice 360! I got one a those now too (again). I traded black Betty in for Lucky, and I sure hope it lives up to it! Lucky was pulled from an early 80s wagoneer with a horribly bent rear driveshaft and some other less serious, but still nasty, under-rig damage. Also, there was this bolt thingy on the flex plate tearing into the thin spacer between the tranny and the motor that must've sounded terrible.

My buddy came with me and together it made the work much better and easier. We pulled the intake manifold first, and the pushrods looked good. It was a little sludgy but in good shape. We then pulled the valve covers and the 1,2,7 & 8 rocker arms. We then pulled the lifters from those cylinders out for inspection. They were well used, but in good shape. We put all that stuff back together. Then we tried to rotate the motor. It didn't turn, then I took it out of park (durp). It still didn't want to turn, but then it popped loose like the tranny slipped out of park and spun easily and freely. Then we pulled the pan and rear main. The rear main was in much better shape than black Betty's. We out all that back and pulled the distributor. It also looked pretty good. So we pulled it and swapped motors

Let see what this one looks like.
