Slowly progressing with the rebuild, these pics were from a couple of days ago when I removed the RH rocker cover–and found a broken timing chain guide!

The left rocker cover was removed yseturday in the trouble-shooting process--it revealed a worn cam-shaft as well as the already known oil leak.

During the rebuild I aim to put a M117 in there, as I have located one within my price range, and that will still give me a usable car during the long rebuild process.
