    So I'm going to take my engine apart again.after putting it back together and putting @300 k on it, The dreaded Cam and lifter noise reared it's head. Take the rocker cover off the front head I discover the cam slippers on the tensioner was (oops) installed wrong :kaboom:and the main cause of the engine tear down was the lack of 2nd & 3rd gearI thought I had that licked when I replaced the offending broken main shaft 2nd gear washers and snap-ring( if anyone needs any mm lockwashers I have them ). To that I have located a new trans gear pack for this and will be installing it later. This time I will take of the heads(sic). As I didn't last time and screwed myself in the repair glad I bought two gasket sets.
    So I did notice some wear on the cams, My question to the group is doe's anyone know of a cam regrinder and and rocker refacer in Canada close to Calgary as alway's thanks to you all for you support.Mike R

    I've not talked to them in a while, I'd appreciate an update on their prices and such if you would.
