Ford huh? Check the oil float pickup mounting bolts at the block surface. I lost two of 3 of my 429 truck motors due to this. The 3rd I checked. Turned them with my fingers! Angry My '92 Ford kept burning valves. No more Fords for me!.

Ben, that's one heckuva rancho you've got out there in Oregon! Beautiful scenery, even makes a 3B look good! (Just kidding....)

Seriously, some of those big-sky backgrounds are spectacular.

Thanks for sharing.
