Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

Cleaning up the balancer. There is some pitting but not a noticeable groove where the seal rides. I like how they designed the seal so it cannot be put in from the outside. Have to pull the whole...

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

When I pulled some of the bolts out they must be drilled into the water jacket. Do you put some kind of sealant on these?

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

Crank looks good. But from this photo it looks like it was timed right.

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

Don't think so. The cam and crank are lined by their marks and the balancer is marked for TDC for ignition so that the rotor is then aligned with #1 wire. Regardless the first step is to put the two...

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

All I know is when I took it apart I made it a point to set the timing mark on the balancer at what I thought was TDC and then just looked to see where the rotor was in relation to that and it was...

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

Okay after watching the video it looks like the rotor should be 180 from #1 when the timing marks are in the correct position. Should I just change the chain or put a set on it?

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

He said he changed it but it definately has a lot of slop in it. So when the timing marks are in the proper position where should I expect the rotor to be pointing? Are the marks not TDC for #1...

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

Noticed that the oil pan bolts to the timing cover. What a PITA!

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

Getting ready to pull the timing cover off to check the alignment. I've read about the 12 links between the marks. Anything else I should look for. Chain is new but my dad thinks he timed it like...

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

I pulled the carb back off and noticed that the gasket lines up with with one of the small holes over one of the vacuum passages. The gasket came with the kit but is it the right one? ...

Electronic ignition is in it now. Is there a set gap between the pick up and the plastic piece that goes over the distributor cam lobes?...

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

It's been cleaned and rebuilt. Doesn't mean it's right though. I put a kit in it about a month ago.I don't recall changing any secondary diaphragm. There is a lot to do on it. It was my dad's project...

Re: 56 T-bird rebuild

The one to the carb side has already been replaced with a flexible one. The manifold vacuum line has to be in place to adjust the timing, correct?
