yeah, back when I had my Buick 401 rebuilt, the engine was so bright and shinny after the machine work, and once I saw it after assembly, big bummer to see it painted a pea green.

Home from the machine shop! Gonna check/correct the distributor drive oil feed first. Then I'll do the windage tray.



Cam card in case you're interested. Keeping boost to a pump gas friendly 6 lbs.

Checked the timing gear to ensure the distributor drive is going to get lubed, appears Rollmaster got it right. The inner area is clearanced all the way around so it doesn't matter where the cam journal feed is.



Additionally they have two feeds for the fuel pump eccentric (some have 4 others have 6) neither of which intersect the feed path. Yay!



Also got the windage tray modified and installed.



Probably slide the oil slinger on it and get the oil pump and timing case installed next. Then I'll fit the oil pan.
