Well, Christmas came the first of the week. My cam kit came in almost a month before it was quoted.

Today the cam was installed and yesterday the heads went to the machine shop. Tomorrow I will break out the degree wheel and get the

cam setup properly.

For everyone that asked, I will be able to give an exact figure on how far below deck the pistons are. Right now without the dial indicator my guess is about 10 thousandths.

A little more than I thought, but all in 16 thousandths is not to bad. So that was what stock was in 67.
I had the heads surfaced and 1. 74 exhaust valves installed on new hardened seats. The guides were all good, so new seals and the springs were installed that came with the cam kit. It was my call, but I hope the $780 spent on a pair of 516 iron heads is worth it.

Continuing with the engine. It's now fully assembled. The distributor was sent to @HALIFAXHOPS , and Ray did an outstanding job in cleaning and refurbishing it. He also re-curved it for my cam choice.

We put primer on the engine with a high heat product and have put the first top coat on with some Mopar engine enamel I had on hand.

The final paint will be in the correct color as this is way to blue, but not until this is cured. PPG mixed the correct color in the more green turquoise.
