Did you use a tool to install it? You didn't hammer it on right?
Are you going to send it back?
Thank You!I had tack once and thought it was just a lifter. Turned out that a lifter had jumped out of the bore and broke the " dog bone " keeper. The lifter was turned and riding the camshaft sideways instead of rolling with it.
Don't want to scare you but it needs to be looked in to. I'm sure you'll get to it. You've done some great work on this car. I enjoy following along as you overcome these problems.
Haha, I went for a redneck look, but it went a bit south ;-)You got 'cowboys' in Croatia?
Nice hat there pilgrim (in my head I hear John Wayne)
Let me help you out with the entire theme you got going on there with some traveling music for when you got the top down:No mechanical update, there was no time.
I was travelling round Europe due to business.
BTW I saw charger R/T '68 in Switzerland, but garage was closed :-(. I believe that one is nowadays rare in US also...
Fox is running like raped ape. However it knocks for some 5 minutes until coolant warms up, after that works and runs like a new car. I would say lifter(s) totally bleeding out. When they pump up they quite down. I am just careful to warm it up for good 10 minutes before any takeoff. Season just started so I plan to drive like this until next teardown in winter.
I also got some occassional ringing around 1000rpm after few hard accelerations, sounding like cat shield or sheet metal hitting something. IMHO sources under car and it should be exhaust related.
I will check exhaust bolts, thermactor tube bolts and O2 sensors for possible knock source, and try to chase ringing source around exhaust pipes.

Haha, I knew it from first reply ;-)You shouldn't have posted that image. LoL
I got a million of 'em!
This was filmed not too far from your neck of the woods. One of the best Western movies ever made.
