Never seen a 60 in Black..


I like it!!!!



OKay, pull the cap off and note where #1 cylinder is.

turn the motor over until the rotor pointes to where #1 is and the BB is lined up with the pointer in the Window above the starter (sometimes there is a small plate covering it. )

I don't really think it matters to put the engine at TDC before removing the head. I would think you really only need to know TDC if you pull the distributor, but the distributor stays in the block when you pull the head. You should probably get a 2F engine manual the same time you get that emissions manual...have fun.

At the top of this list should be;

Factory service manual
2F engine manual
2F emission manual
Then you can buy all the rest of the stuff, those are the most important tools in your tool box

Get it back together AND HOOK UP SOME OF THOSE VACUUM and AIR HOSES! Find out how it runs with everything hooked up correctly, then start tweaking individual components.

Then, start using complete words... us old farts can't decipher code as well as we used to back in the war...

The number 1 position on the cap is the one that the number 1 plug wire runs to. The number 1 plug is the farthest forward sparkplug.

Factory caps have each terminal labled, as do factory plug wires.

Just a heads up - Depending on where you're moving in TN, you might have to pass smog. All of the urban areas (and most of the contiguous counties) require an annual test. No smog tests out in the sticks, though. Just something you might want to consider before you tear it all out...
