Thanks for the link. This Facet pump seems to get pretty good reviews too...

So I am still waiting on the shop to mic my engine. They honed the cylinder walls and said everything looks fine. One rod is really black and they recommend replacing it. All bearings of course need replaced. They said they gave it one “bath” and will do that one more time.

Things are slow moving. The shop is short staffed right now and they are getting to my engine when they can. It’s a small job for them, so I’m just grateful they’re even messing with it.

The camshaft cup was binding, so I took it home and realized there isn’t the appropriate gap below the retainer ring, which is causing the cup to bind. Looks like the center pin isn’t sticking out the recommended distance, so I’ll add that to my parts list as well. That little retainer ring sure put up a fight when tying to remove it!

Speaking of guidance, here’s a question on my list to ask...

Heavy fiber or cup grease—is the grease used on regular wheel bearings sufficient, or is there something better?
