Hi All,

Well, I didn't make my deadline of August due to an engine that has tight spot in it. All the pistons are free in the bores but when I try to turn it, it has a tight spot for about 90 degrees of the 360 degrees of rotation.
Its tight enough that the starter cannot make it past the said 90 degrees but can be barred over on the flywheel.

I ran out of steam and had to distract myself with other projects for the last while as to not get bitter about this.
Does anyone have any insight into this problem? It's the usual Continental 6 that most of these early pickups had.
