I split the case this morning. First I took the heads back off and removed the pistons and cylinders. It was mostly the reverse of removal - I slid the cylinder off the piston far enough to expose the ...

Should be an easy fix. Can you simply pop it out and install a new one.

Nope, I have to split the case. I also think the leak is coming from the case seam somewhere below the cam plug rather than f ...

This morning I decided to change the pushrod tube seals while I had the heads off, since they've been reused several times by now. I wiped the Hylomar clean as previously described on the heads and ca ...

Any chance you are using the wrong intake rings? There were several slightly different sizes. More than one size can fit there, but only one will seal. There was a thread (or a reply in a thread) ...

I made two discoveries while taking things off the engine yet again, to fix a popped-out pushrod tube seal.

The first was fuel residue on the left intake manifold flange, just like the last time. T ...

Yesterday I went ahead and took the top off of the carburettor to make sure everything was OK. The float was floating, and the needle valve moved freely, so that was that. I had a different needle val ...

Update:

I went ahead and tried both a different carburettor, another rebuilt 30PICT-1, and another distributor, a 205T unit, to no effect.

I also swapped the cylinder heads left-to-right to see ...

Hmm. I made some gaskets and put them under the pump. I found two was enough to bring the fuel pressure down to 2.8 psi on the gauge. While it eliminated some popping at speed and when closing the thr ...

That said, I'll have to go with what jonnypan has said before, a simple thread title change would fix everything. Something like, 'I want to build a proper '67 engine', or 'Building a proper ' ...

Volkzbitz lent me another 30PICT-1 carburettor, and also a 205 T distributor. I really appreciate it, because I was going to buy them if I had to.

The flywheel seal is dripping again (so slowly it hasn't reached the floor), so I've ordered the appropriate supplies.

I also bought a smoke machine in order to definitively test for air leaks. Aut ...

I am sure about the sealing rings - there was definitely nothing there but the machined recess in the head.

Does starting fluid attack paint or leave any residue? Would water do the trick, in brief ...
