This were the Spring-Loaded tubes- hoping it is not TOO big a deal to fix Shocked

As far as the aircleaner bracket goes: A bit of research shows the I'm missing the bracket UNDER the bracket that I already have Confused It's the one that doubles as a support for the balance tube and turns 90 degrees for the aircleaner bracket Question Exclamation

Jason? I know you're close to this stage with your motor-- got an extra?
Joel?

ISP?

Bueller? Wink

Ok - climbed under the car and discovered the oil leak source(s)

Look- #3 is split and the other look deformed or squished with sealant.

Hope to pull lower tin and get at this problem...

Other side is totally dry and sealed with the same style of collapsible tubes

Glad you made it home. One thing, check your accelerator cable against the back tin piece as it looks to be rubbing against the cable outlet piece. May be bent a little.

Good catch - I thought was supposed to be at an angle- wasn't sure.

Just grab with pliers and bend?

Maybe lite taps with a rubber mallet to get it where you want it.

What pushrod tubes are those? I'm used to seeing a bellows on the ends (stock). I'm wondering if those are set up too long.

For my notes:

14828 - Car comes home (likely installed with 18425)
14836 - Top off gas tank (gauge is not working - touchy wire)
14850 - Changed to Stock Aircleaner and Changed oil (some minor metal filings typical for break-in or so I've been told)

Next break-in oil change and set valves-
15125 (300 from new)

I may change the oil again before 300.
