Okay, new metal fuel line for the carb, so that should
Pulled the valve covers again.
Pulled the gaskets and could clearly see where oil had been passing under and over them.
Despite not liking it I bought some Permatex non-harding gasket sealer.
Cleaned every sealing surface, applied a light coat of the Permatex to both sides of the gasket.
Letting it sit overnight.
If it still leaks either these gaskets are junk, too thin, or I am bottoming the edge of the valve cover on the Performer RPM manifold.
The last seems possible as although I cannot SEE that happening, both sides leaked oil on the intake side.
Looking at the rubber gaskets they appear to have been well compressed as you can see a line from the sealing surface of the heads.
I would like to replace these chrome tin covers with finned aluminum but the budget says that has to wait.
So I will see how it goes in the morning, if they still leak I will need some thicker gaskets.
Got the "New" frame home and it appears to be strait.
One very small repair at the very front of the drivers side.
Guy I bought it from says he drove the car it came from and that it tracked strait with no unusual handling issues.
Looks like an IRS conversion may not be as simple as I had hoped.
I will probably have to remove the original spring pockets and some other no longer needed brackets.
