Just thought I would update the team on the progress of 4072. Pictures courtesy of J R Restorations who is doing the sand, prime and paint. Should be ready to prime in another week. Meanwhile, the heads are out being cleaned with new springs put in. The motor will start being put back together Sunday..........

Correct. Most people don't realize that all factory harmonic balancers (except OEM Boss parts) were only pressed together. The 8-12 lbs of parts are not bonded together at all; not sure about modern replacements but they also seem to slip. The slippage always seems to be toward the retard side of the timing marks, too.
The black looks good. Although, I doubt any other modification to my Panteras get a bigger "Wow" than when I open my decklid and the engine is displayed in body color panels. It is just so unexpected. The affect is greater on women who seem to anticipate a typical engine bay and are treated to a vibrant setting displaying the jewels. Just Sayin'.

Mike's offering a conservative approach on an over top ride. Certainly easier to care for.
