Are you required to run a diaper or is it recommended? May be a good chance to build one that can cheat the airflow a but underneath.... Like a...
Think about pinion and carrier bearings.... They use quite a bit of preload. Why would you adjust wheel bearings with little or no load on them?...
He is running it on a lift and can hear it. Takes front suspension out of the equation.
Secret word of the day..... stethoscope.
They are cheap. You can get one at any auto supply.
They all rust.... change them.
You need to find out where the timing really is and what it is doing at what rpms. All mechanical or vacuum advance? Without correct timing you...
Contact carbking here on the HAMB. He can fix you up. Going to a parts store without an exact application or tag won't get you far.
Oil coming in at the bottom keeps a film of oil where the most pressure is applied to the shaft by the rocker.
First issue is you said you just rebuilt it when all you did was hose it off.
Get a kit and rebuild it. Do it right.
You talking about the holes in the rocker shaft?
They go down.
How much vacuum does it have at idle? With a lumpy cam it may not be able to pull enough vacuum thru the pcv to create a drop in crankcase...

It's a simple bullet connector that looks to be rusted so bad that it has grown together. Cut it out and replace it or splice it.
Yes it is recessed.
Sounds like you need a little higher stall convertor or smaller cam. Big cams and stock convertors don't play well together.
I would weigh the...
Sounds like the pickup tube is loose and sucking air as the oil is sent thru the motor or the tube has fallen off of the pump.
Getting pressure readings off of the governor, pump and front band apply circuit would tell you everything about what is wrong.
There are 4 yokes that fit 8 3/4 and dana 60.
10 spline small and large u-joint.
29 spline small and large u-joint.
From my recollection most...
It won't be metric..... More like a 10-32 would be my guess. I don't have one to look at. As suggested, you have the screw so find a nut that fits...
Jim just ran a 10.39
What was the original problem? We need to know so we can determine if the problem still exists or if you created a new one.
Pretty basic system....
The friction modifier that Ford used came from Dana IIRC.
Most gear lubes you buy at auto supplies has friction modifier in it already... Read...
The old Ford limited slip additive stunk to high heaven. The new stuff doesn't. If that car sat that long it probably still has the original...
