    Air compressor in garage or out?

    Mine is in an unheated 30x40 shop ....I just ignore the noise....after a while I don't notice it. The only problem I have is if I need it in the winter at -20 I have to put a heater nearby to heat the oil to get it to start properly.

    Why is my 426 hemi stamped marine

    My take on this is that originally the engine was modified to run counterclockwise as a lot or most marine engines do. I have seen 440's modified in this fashion. The difference being the camshaft of course.

    Tie rod end separator... not “pickle fork”

    I use a pickle fork on my air chisel ....there are tools that work the opposite of a gear puller that pushes from the top to push the taper out of the knuckle. They work quite well.

    The green funky crud.

    All depends on what is in the air around the connectors. Dielectric grease is a good solution but a bit messy for me....I use Deoxit 5...useing a q-tip to put a very light coating on the blades of the connector.

    Still no luck with the '69 Charger 383. Hasn't fired once.

    ] The last time I had a problem like this the cam chain had jumped a couple of notches...had spark and gas to every cyl. but no run....make sure you don't have one of those hinky plastic tooth cam sprockets...
