Plugs in ... tick
Test fit pan ... tick

Moving along well.

Are you using the front or side dip stick ?


I will someday think of something clever to say.

I didn't want to shame you having had your big-arsed V8 Holden towed home by a 6 cylinder 2002 AU Falcon Forte... But now that you mention it Poke Poke Poke :rotfl: :rotfl:

Yeah yeah, I know Karma will get me back for it!

Boof - Not sur don't have a dipstick yet timing cover has a port probably go with that as the sump already has a plug but open to suggestions.

Mike - What was that you wanted all your steering rebuild parts thrown out? Turns out that big cammed LS1 needs a lot of voltage to get kicked in the guts. Lucky you had the tow rope otherwise it would have been the border collie pulling and me steering....god knows where we would have ended up!

Just waiting on a hardened cam thrust plate (countersunk to suit the torrington bearing chain), need to drill that front gallery plug and then can finish off cam install for good, timing cover and sump final install.

To paint or not to paint the timing cover is the question....?

I used the standard early block dip stick which goes through the front cover. In doing so I di need to drill a hole in the Pan's baffle to set the dip stick to pass into the oil. The later model has the hole in the side of the block so that might be best to use. Also you also do not need to find a plug to fill/seal the hole as would be the case using another method.

My cam plate I created my own countersunk holes using the drill press. Purchase the counter sunk bolts from a local bolt shop and (as expected) use lock tight to make sure they stayed in. I liked using the Torrington bearing chain. If you bother checking end play on the Cam then it is only 2 thou when using the Torrington bearing not the usual 4 - 8 thou for a standard install Cam end play.

I like the Alloy look so I would not paint it - but if you not using an alloy water pump (odd if not but who knows) then I would paint it.


I will someday think of something clever to say.
