    Neg cable end, as well as return spring bracket and intake surface were bare metal prior to painting engine to provide good ground and gets sandwiched between the two. AVS2 is only used for cruising/local shows, but the original restored 4429S is basically identical.

    Valve Stem Seals or Something More?

    I'm guessing the valve guides themselves could be worn. Btw, your car is one of my all-time favorites whenever I go to Carlisle. Love the color.
