I have been re-building three Montreal engines of late. Almost hardest thing is to keep all the Cadmium plating, black oxide hardware straight and with it's correct engine.

Lovely work Larry. Do you do anything special with the waterpump seal? Are all of these engines keeping their Spica?

A little rewind on engine 1, the current supply of lower chain tensioners are the cheap ( new design?)no oil feed, non retractable type, beware what you order. I will try to take a couple pictures of the differences.

Hi Larry, I'd like to see the difference between tensioners...

The engines look so good and clean; are they all customers engines or are some yours? Nothing like new pistons and liners and fresh cams...the V-8 you built for Paul's car is still running strong!

I have been told the old 'flat tappet' engines need an oil additive to replace the moly that has been eliminated from new oil. I used 'Zinc', I think, a clear liquid that adds $20 to the 3 gallons of oil in a Montreal.
