  1. PB Blaster is good for breaking loose stuck (rusty) stuff but is not a lubricant. For a motor like that, a good grade of light oil is sufficient. Good old 3-IN-1 is great
  2. My 70' (RQA-0381) had the valve cover ground down for the Alternator also...

It's still sitting in the garage...
  13. You may ask these people about making them... http://www.mcmillanrodandcustom.com/Moldings.ivnu
  14. Magnesium, once on fire will create its own oxygen and cannot be put out with water or the usual extinguisher. This was first found out in fires on early aircraft landing gear. Those new versions of the Halibrand design are sure to be all aluminum..
  15. Should have 3/8" inlet/outlet
