    If you get a year out of a cap and rotor
    That’s good
    Anything after that
    If it stops running
    Replace those first

    Can you be more specific where it is coming from? You did use a new oil pump gasket right?

    Truth Mikieman, its been a minute since I have worked on distributor V8s. I should have at least remembered the coil lead to the rotor arm check. That one is a simple test to see if your grounding out through the distributor shaft. My last truck was a Nissan Diesel and my other cars have been coil over plug.

    The oil leak is all sorted now, just needed to re-torque the timing cover bolts and let it get up to temp. The crush washers were actually fine, yes I used a new oil pump gasket. The leak was coming from the area where the block oil galley starts. I suppose the o-rings in my kit are for the other style cover?

    I'm not sure if its the new chain or generous advance I gave the timing (10-12 degrees), but the engine is ticking along the best it has since I started driving it. It has been fun getting to know this Rover a bit better, but I am glad to have it back on the road. There will be some spare parts getting stashed in anticipation for the next round. And, on an upbeat note, I also just finished refurbishing my factor radio, amp and sub. No I can put my dash back that some ******* tore out last year...
    Cheers,
