Timing B head (Intake)

I had to solder an extension to do the B head.
Verifying the timing. When done properly, the long marks on the cam shafts align with the caps on the A head and the short marks align on the B head.

Gapped the points before installing the distributor.

Aligned the distributor on the TDC of cylinder one (Compression stroke).

Changed the dipstick o ring with a 3X10 mm.

I made a little tool to check for engine torque. I found 25 f/lbs to 50 f/lbs depending on the number of opening valves. This is without oil pressure; I think this engine is pretty free.
