Quite a productive day for Betty Blue. Pulled the intake/exhaust manifold, put in a new gasket, shortened the OG exhaust (it's custom 😂) and did a full lash adjustment. She fired and idled for the first time in a couple months and the "new" exhaust sounds pretty damn good. Ran into bit of a problem at the end, she started leaking oil from the distributor. Anyone have ideas as to why?... do they have an o-ring of some sort? Any ideas please comment below. Other than that it was amazing to hear the old girl fire and run again. Hopefully when this issue is resolved I can get an exhaust sound clip.
