Can you lube the fuel pump cam through the hole? Or, just goop up the lever on the pump itself? I don't recall any need for extra lube on the timing chain itself.

Might save you from tearing it apart.

Hey Topless!

Yeah, I thought I'd lube the fuel pump arm. The timing chain is not new and is original, so there is probably enough oily to go thru the firing procedure.

Use a THICK bead of high-temp silicone. The bead should be about 1/4" tall. Let it set up a couple minutes, then be sure to use 4 studs in the heads to make the intake drop straight down. After you get the rest of the bolts in and hand tight, remove the studs and put the last 4 bolts in.

Should be good for years of leak free operation.
