Hello COFFMAN,
You can set everything up from the top, set motor to firing mark on compression, loosen clamp and turn distributor body in reverse to cam rotation until points begin to open and clamp it. This applies with any cam, number one spark plug is where the rotor points following with firing order for the rest, once running . follow up with a timing light.

Thanks David.... yes my biggest concern was to have it placed in the correct position as to be not working against the steel vacuum advance line for final timing setting.... but in say that no 1 can be any hole in the disturber cap...this motor hasn't been fired yet

On the final stages of motor and drive line assembly... thinking all is good. The radiator was the last thing on the list, picked one up over the weekend, needs a re-core. Which i was happy to do with a new motor and all.
Talking to a block that was in the radiator game and he tells me it will cost a grand to re-core .... ouch... will look into this with local rad shops this week. Any input into alloy built to fit replacement.

A grand is probably right. The heavy duty core (as probably fitted) is a few hundred dearer than "high-efficiency" type I had put in mine. That was about $740 in 2009.
I don't really know how the aluminium ones go, but I know a few have done it as it was a lot cheaper.

A fedw years back the radiator in the tractor was $1300. Had to be custom made core to suit the top n bottom tanks. Once home and fitted the cost did not hurt as much.

I view radiators a bit like

Yes they cost a lot but like Cobba says, you forget the pain pretty quick

A I feel a radiator is a lot cheaper than a motor and the cost is also forgotten pretty quick when you run into never ending over heating problems

Maybe think about some shade cloth or fly wire or a stocking on the top hose that goes back into the top tank the first drives to collect any floaters in your engine block
