Been in the process of sprucing up a 63 4dr w an inline 6 since December and haven't cranked it since. Its starting to come together and I want to make sure Im putting things back in the right order and properly since this is the first car Ive worked on. I am at the point of doing a valve lash adjustment and the shop manual and chilton manual aren't too clear on what to do if its a replaced head. The instructions say to adjust while the engine is warm but that wont work in my case. Whats the best way to handle this?

Here is a list of what ive been doing to this car

  • Rebuilt the rochester single carb
  • Removed the cylinder head and took it to a shop to be rebuilt
  • Replaced the exhaust manifold that was damaged and leaked off the front
  • Installed an HEI conversion kit from Pertronix
  • Removed the Ac System to be reconditioned, had reciever/dryer rebuilt and condenser redone.

here is a pic of where i am with it


heres where I started
