It's been off the road for a few months. Started missing at idle on #2 and after going through compression test (175,173,175,175), carbs, changing everything out on ignition, checking lift at each valve, I finally gave in and pulled the head. Machine shop found a rather long crack going across the top and down the side, but nothing in any combustion chambers (still not 100% satisfied that was the problem) I decided to use a small chamber head to get a bit more compression and after sending every...

Taking care of several little things on the car, the might as wells, and things I've been thinking of doing led me to pull the engine.

I could buy the parts, but I'm limmeted on budget.
