Painted mine last week. Just waiting for a day of not working on the B to get it assembled. Maybe tomorrow, now that I fixed the oil slick. I'm still trying to decide if I keep the pintle or not.. Yours came out mighty fine mister. Want to come over and show off your skills? 😁

I've been living with a leak I could not find for a while now, slightly high idle and had to run with just a little choke.  I  sprayed around everything, and even tried propane... nothing.  The little bit of blue smoke I had was written off to valve guides.  I had to add a quart of oil a couple weeks back but thought nothing of it after all the driving I've been doing... til Saturday when I had to add another quart.

I pulled the pcv and found it "well oiled"... dripping, actually.  The valve is not being pulled closed at idle, leaving me an open "intake leak" I couldn't find by spraying, and at my slightly elevated idle rpm near high vacuum it was just sucking oil to be burned off.  This is cleaned up, but really nothing jumping out at me "wrong":
.
 
.
I temporarily plugged the hole in the manifold and instantly idling like a kitten down to around 500 rpm with no choke.  It's been time for a valve adjust, I'm going to strip back to the valve cover and redo everything back out.  Still a little puzzled, but thrilled to have finally found "something" Confused

Very Interesting MB, I'm thinking cleaning of the PVC (PCV Embarrassed) valve should be added to the maintenance routine. I would have not thought about that, well done Thumbs Up

Ship of Theseus - As years go by wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new. After a century, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

Yay!  Valve adjust day is finally here Thumbs Up (sarcasm Ermm)
.
.
I knew this would be coming fast the day I lapped the valves, and I've been putting it off... and now I know why LOL.  First order of business was to clean up some of that NH mud splatter to get the surgical area clean...ugh.
.
Second order of business was this coffee table puzzle getting this cover outta here, lol, but there is a way... thank goodness
.
.
no boring pics of feeler gauges and all, but it was pretty easy with the fender off, well worth the time.  Only one of eight valves required no adjustment, and several were way off.  Test drive was much "quieter" Embarrassed  

Last order of business was redoing the pcv stuff on the way back to whole...
.
.
A little time with a vac gauge, timing light and a tach and we're happily idling around 7-800rpm without the choke.  Still needs a little tweaking and dialing in, but hopefully the oil consumption is in the past.  Next step is new (clean) plugs, rechecking points and dwell, and a final vac gauge timing session... oh, and get the rest of NH in the bucket Wink

I need to adjust my valves too. Did you remove the valve cover with the fuel pump on? I dont want to remove the exhaust or manifolds. I will remove the fender. Getting that cover off and out looks challenging.

I found exactly one way to slide the the loose cover rearward far enough to then clear the exhaust and remove the cover towards the front... I did, however, have to hold my tongue just right, and squint with my left eye LOL

So did you “fix” the PCV?

I believe so, but ultimately time will tell.   ...and by fix i mean i replaced everything from the valve cover gasket to the intake taking extra care at every interface.  it no longer acts like it has a vacuum leak and idles well without the choke, i just need to watch for future oil consumption.  i put a 50 mile spin on it yesterday afternoon and can say, if nothing else, the exhaust smells better Thumbs Up

I had the front clip off for an engine swap recently, so everything that needed to come apart didn't fight me.  I also spent a decent amount of time just cleaning to be sure I wouldn't invite grit into the work.  With that in mind, +/- :

Removing the fender 20min
Removing the PCV stuff 10min 
Removing the valve cover 15min (should have been 5min, lol)
Adjusting the valves 30min
Cleaning old gaskets and resealing new 20min
Reinstall Valve cover and PCV 30min
Reinstall fender 20min

So roughly 2-1/2 hours straight through...add about an hour cleaning and a half hour after for rechecking and adjusting timing and whatnot and it was an easy four hours...which took closer to 5 or six what with stopping for lunch and misc honeydo stuff.  Started about 9am, test driving by 3pm
