Nice to see you got your car running. I will be trying to get mine back up next week.
Good to hear! I got lucky and didn't have the valve seat drop on mine. (Though it was cracked and ready to go!) It was just having a miss at startup and I decided to pull the head since I couldn't figure it out.
I look forward to hearing yours is on the road again. (Maybe I will see it next time I drive through southern Indiana!)
Oh, and If you need any advice, just let me know. I had mine torn all the way down (except the pistons and rods). Plus I have the Ford Dealership Service Manual, so I can send you info from that if you need it. Though it sounds from your post that you know what you are doing!
Thanks. I don't think I will have much trouble. Labeling and remembering to put things back will help in the repair. As for manuals, I do have the FSM, but will ask any questions if I need to.
