Slinter's Second Venture

I found this little prize before it got junked. Ladies husband had expired and she wanted it out of the yard. Have already had the Block Shop do the machining and provide all rebuilding parts for the 360. My buddy and I will soon assemble the motor and the I will start on the chassis. Have a ton of replacement panels from the states and have a good Esab mig welder. Should be interesting providing I don't get divorced.

BACK TO THE BUILD. Where I left off. Tub is hanging in garage. Half rebuilt motor stored at buddies place. Frame repair started.
I am attempting to press on new vibration damper. Crank has heli coil in it. Have made a home fashioned pusher. I was thinking of cooling crank (dry ice) and heating damper and then go for it.

finished the front half of the rotisserie cause I felt like doing some welding. Now I should get back to the frame.

After pounding the frame with a sledge hammer and blowing it out with high pressure air, I injected a rust5 tratment into the inside of the frame. The frame is in good shape for a 80 CJ7.

I had a gallon of this Industrial Metal Primer hanging around so I liberally injected it into the frame. I think this frame will be preserved for awhile, lol.

learn from my mistakes. Put the stock baffle under the edelbrock intake and use the valley pan style intake gasket. If not you will suck all the oil through the pcv valve. Ask me how I know. What timing chain set did you use? Some manufacturers have drilled the hole wrong in the cam gear for the oil passage that allows oil to get to the distributor gear. Do a google search for amc cam gear oil hole or maybe amc distributor gear wear.

I do have a new valley pan gasket. The timing chai was supplied by the machine shop that supplied my rebuild parts. I don’t know what you are saying about a “ baffle” thanks for your reply

There is a baffle that is riveted to the bottom of the stock intake. I’ve been told to take that off and rivet in on the new intake. I used an edelbrock air gap on my 401. It has a small little baffle right under the Pcv valve. It doesn’t stop oil from being sucked up into the intake. I also have the internal oil line inside the engine right below the intake. So I wasn’t able to use the valley pan gasket.
I drove my Jeep to work one day not mowing I was sucking oil through the pcv valve. Someone told me at work I was burning oil real bad(I didn’t notice).On my drive home I noticed my oil pressure drop to zero when I went around a sharp turn. That was enough to do damage. Not long after that I heard what sounded like a rod knock. #8 cylinder piston and bore were scored. When I tore the engine back down I also found scored main bearings. After doing some research to find out what the happened to my brand new engine( thank goodness for the internet). I found no valley pan gasket is the main culprit for oil ingestion into the pcv valve.
After a second rebuild(I’m now at .045 over bore using Wiseco pistons) I am now running a valley pan gasket trimmed around the internal oil line, I machined an aluminum plug and plugged the pcv port in the intake, and welded a small block chevy bung in the valve cover and put the pcv valve in the valve cover.
