    Go to your local welding supply : Their version of a "Dye Check Kit" will be one hell of a lot cheaper, &, once you learn how to use it properly, will be just as effective for most tests, with the advantage of not being limited to ferrous metals, unlike Magnaflux, which is.

    Just finished reading about the "Heap" in the latest issue of Hot Rod Deluxe. Didn't know you had changed your name from Nelson to Wilson! Tell Brian B. to go-go-go.

    For what it's worth they spoke highly of Mr. Wilson and the Heap; had some pictures too!

    Quick question regarding the single lock adjustable tappets... does any modifications need to be done to the block? Specifically, does the tappet guide need to be shortened in order to make room to put tools on the adjustable tappet?
    Thanks in advance!

    if you want to be able to adjust them without the rolling motor back & forth , yes cut the lifter blocks so lifters have clearance to adjust . much better than rolling motor back & forth to adjust .
