Curious why you tried to go this route? Seems like extra work when you could just use an inline fill? Have we talked about this? I can't remember, your swap is taking too long lets get this tuned so we can see some numbers and find an excuse to boost mine!
you are trying to guide the push rods right so the rockers wont turn ? if that is what you are looking to do why not get BBC guide plates and cut them in the middle if needed and make them the width you need bolt them to a bare spare head and weld back together it is just a thought and by the way you are doing a great job would love to see this car some day

good news, alternator bracket works, no odd noises or anything, belt wasn't destroyed in seconds, nothing exciting happened, it just worked! the car didn't overheat for the short time I ran it in the driveway, which is another plus!
so, the oil line to the turbo blew the hose end off, not 100% sure if it was an install error, material failure, or a combination of the two. either way, the turbo is trashed, new ebay turbo on the way to replace it for the time being
Awe man seriously!? Was there something building pressure in the line like a plug in the turbo or something?
Originally posted by ericjon262: to my knowledge, no, it is possible, but I have no evidence to suggest what exactly caused it.
If you are running oil to a turbo a standard rubber oil line held on a hose nipple by clamps will not hold. Either use a steel line, double flared with brass fittings (preferred) at the ends or AR fittings and stainless steel braided lines.
