Sorry to hear that, but I am glad to hear the engine builder is going to stand behind it.

Ok figured out what the no oil pressure problem was and as you can see by the pic the push rod went through the rocker arm and lifter came out.  It's been fixed at no cost runs much better now, no other damage.  Car now is at the suspension shop for an alignment, some of the front end is 50 years old and needs replacing.

you sure that the oil holes in the bottom of the rocker shaft are pointing the correct direction?

I think you got lucky that it was just a rocker arm issue!  Glad to hear that you didn't have to pull the car all apart again.

So the car is home now, the suspension shop had a field day, the tie rods are 50 years old the sleeves that adjusts the aliment they twisted off like pieces of licorice, because of 50 years of rust.  Anyways $1600 cdn later the front end is, well brand new.   But to be honest it drives like new now.  The best part of the car when driving is hands down the TREMEC.  It was worth every penny, it is so much fun driving the car with the manual.  No BS at 60 miles an hour in 5th gear its at 1500 rpm.

Headliner needs to be put in (already have a legendary headliner) , get correct seat belts, paint the wing same color as the body (already priced out at $400 cdn) thinking of getting some BFG T/A's thinking of going with 295 50 15 in the back 245 60 15 in the front.  Then she pretty much done. Maybe for Christmas will get a wood grain dash.  But the car today is driveable, runs great, just today finally got the hood turn signals to work.  The connection was rusty where the bulb goes took me a couple of hours to narrow it down.
