Hydraulic roller. It's in my fresh 459 CJ. I wanted a smooth idle with a boatload of torque. 1.76 rockers, 9.8 C.R. Stock heads, intake,  carb, exhaust manifolds, 2 1/2" exhaust, auto 3.91s. I'm thinking it's going to run nice.

I always enjoy reading one of Marcus's tech articles. I have saved them all and look at them quite frequently.

I am wondering about one thing, on the last page about the overspray on the bell housing, item 58. If the bell housing received overspray because it was attached at the time the motor was painted shouldn't the bolts have paint(overspray) as well?

Keep them coming Marcus.

I made a similar observation as my candy apple red Mach 1 has a dark red interior that is the correct color for my car. Someone chastised me and I let the topic drop. I have been looking for a die cast of my car for several years with no luck as they seem to favor black interiors.   Dave R.

I'll try and get a photo out tonight but the decal on the 6 19 chrome covers I was referring to is C8OE-C.

I think Dave at ECS makes all the decals everyone advertises. His part numbers are close to NPD and match the description.

FEM 156 described as 68-early 69 390/428
FEM 157 described as 69 390/428

That may not mean anything except that today we have 2 choices. These covers were used later 67 cars as well.
