So I've got my 1904 installed.

74 X 90.5

Here is my problem:  I am experiencing a severly sluggish turn-over with the starter

Cr. is 8.5 to 1 ... it was tight but spinning by hand ok when out.  There was no indication of bearings being crimped, misalighned or otherwise. 

In the car, I noticed my clutch pedal had a TON of movement in it with this engine.  I have adjusted that up.

Starter was fine before engine went in.  Turned over my stock 1600 motor with no issues or slowing down at all.

I have a new battery with 650 CCA.  Ground straps both are tight and clean.

Any thought on what is going on?

Hey, If Youre looking for a bad motor...I have several to choose from.

I figured it out...Im an idjiot.   Pully was binding on the over sized bolts holding the full-flow cover on my oil pump...DOH!

On another note...I am pretty sure one of my rear oil galley plugs is leaking.  Car started right up after I fixed the binding issue and then proceeded to begin bleeding from the front(tranny) side of the motor.  #^$&#*@&!

The plug is the most likely culprit as the rear main is in all the way, lubricated, and brand new...then again.  We'll find out tomorrow.

By the way coolblue...
I was serious about that dizzy.  Id give it a go if your interested.

Any bright ideas???

This engine leaks bad!  I replaced the pushrods thinking they were the culprit but no change.  There is no cracking in this case that I can tell.  Leak not from oil cooler.

Has anyone experienced leaking around the jugs?  Is that possible?  The oil level is right in the middle of the marks.  There are .09 spacers between case and jugs...no gaskets.  Should I have Rtv'd?

Any thoughts?

I always use a generous amount of RTV at the base of the barrels since there aren't gaskets.  I had pretty good luck with the black or gray.

Alright, finally digging back in to get some RTV back.   Found some pretty chewed up Pushrod seals...I think that was a major part of my problem.  I plan to replace those and get er all buttoned back up.

I noticed some funky orange marking on the new heads ... vapor from the something?  Any thoughts?  When I break-in I typically add extra zinc in the oil...could that have caused this.


Also, I havent run brand new valves before...does this look like normal, hardly used wear?  Seems like a lot of carbon for break-in but I know the carbs are running a little (LOT)  rich right now


Thanks!

The orange stuff is strange to me but those valves do show the richness with your carbs. When you install the new pushrod seals be sure to get the white ones and spray them down with carb cleaner before putting them on the tube and applying your RTV. In addition I put a little RTV on the head-side of the washers.

It seems like the Orange is a varnishing effect of the oil/zinc combo. 

I rtv's the spacers, tubes, and pump and buttoned everything back up.  Primed the oil pump and everything is looking copacetic.

Thanks for the advice/info
