    I agree with Paul.....I can toss a bunch of $2 condensers, but not $15 ones. Today I picked up a Brit made NOS condenser from a friend that had a Brit car shop for many years before he retired. He now just deals in parts....won't touch a car. Haven't installed it yet.
    Steve, I had hoped to pull the carbs after Thanksgiving, when central Oklahoma weather is generally too cool to enjoy roadste...

    I think your comments are correct for TF's too Jud.

    The rubber lacing goes right to the bottom.
    I think the nut is captive?? I can see the bolts threaded end behind the slats.
    I have attached a pic showing the factory piping for the side panel. It is a slightly smaller diameter than the wing piping.

    Dear Friends I was helped with a other block by a very nice person . so that's solved.

    As stated before my camera was stolen with the memory card and have not bought another one yet.

    Thanks for the support ( also the moral support on this mishap)

    Best regards to all of you,

    I bought a set of 40 oversize flat top 1622 pistons and rings from NOS (new Old Stock Locators) through their eBay site about 18 months ago. (I believe they may be the same company as Scarborough Faire).
    They proved to be both excellent, and very reasonably priced.

    Just s thought , there is a large grub screw in the back of the head, under the rear cover plate which plugs the head oil galley machining access. If loosened during head work it will pump oil into the coolant at a rapid rate ( ask me how I know ) If you are fortunate , and this is the case, loosen four screws remove the cover, loctite the grub screw back in and your problem may be solved...
