Thanks Again!

Thanks for the quick responses Dave!

If the weather holds up, and the wife doesn't have me
planting "HoneyDo"'s I should be able to button the engine
up this weekend.

On another "Manual" vs "Reality" matter, When I reset the cam
sprockets (after jumping time, rolling in the new chain), with
Cyl 1 at TDC, I set the sprocket washer marks (key) to match
the marks on the cam bearing tower ( about 2 O'clock ). The
manual says to set the sprockets key straight up ( 12 O'clock ).

I guess I'll know after I reinstall the rocker arms and slowly
roll the engine over by hand.
No need to reply, just thinking out loud.

Thanks again.
