"Yes. I am however, my camshaft should be about new with less than 4K miles on it. Since engine is out and you said timing chain is very worn, camshaft lobes probably  have a good amount of wear and would be a good time to replace it. I think…"

"Push Rods were the same 63 to 66. Valve Lifters were the same 58 to 66. I see a few other brands on Rock Auto. I like the Melling as they are known for being a quality USA Made produce.  I seen the JB-969 on Amazon for 4.95 with free shipping."

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

All window and seat controls appear to be…
