I'm stripping down an early '62 engine for an overhaul and thought I'd post my progress so far. This is a high mileage engine that I think was last rebuilt about 30 years ago. I pulled the right head expecting to find a dropped valve or something (it had no compression in #2), but things don't look as bad as I thought they would:
#2 sure is oily! I'm now thinking a ring may be the culprit. It turns over smoothly and I haven't found any metal shavings yet. I really hope the heads are salvageable -- these '62 heads with the 90¡ intake ports are pretty scarce. I'm going to let a professional take it from here. I'll let you know what he finds.
