Good job! Glad you got oil moving up to the rockers. Here's a link to the shop manual you should find helpful. There are some special tools they use here that are going to be hard to find I'm thinking. Maybe some of the other 216 guys (I think there's a 216 social group here on the HAMB) could offer some advice. http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/shop/1949_53/06engine/6_021.HTM Oh, and on adjusting the valves, I adjust them on a running engine but I hear that's old hat now. If you go over to Stovebolt.com and do a search you'll find some easy static adjustment methods. Good luck with the 216, they're great little engines.
