  • Bad56Sedan Said:
I'd try the plug in box fan in front of rad pushing, see if it works,
Made no difference on mine still tried to over heat,
Did compression check, 190-195 psi on all 8 cylinders,
So not a blown head gasket, cracked block or cracked head.....
Then I found it...........
Distributor gear ate up!!
Just curious on why the bronze gear? Retro-roller cam or roller cam setup block? That gear is all but gone; concerns about the metal through the engine? I have an old dual point distributor I was planning to use, but it has a bronze gear on kit. HV/HP oil pump or thick oil?
Thanks. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
Bronze nickel gear half way gone......
