I took the snap ring off the shaft so it was easier to mark the line from center of trunnion and center of the tip, then put it back together.

THAT'S the line I lined up the bottom of the little metal corner bracket with, when I put the level on it.

SO, I figure if the top of the stem was level, and then my line is from center to center and the level is dang near the same as it was on the valve stem, it is basically like the Straub video. He stuck a straight edge on the retainer and eye balled it with the mark he made on the rocker arm, which was funny, because in the video, he come up with 2 different numbers when he does it twice. 😆

Finally got stuff lined up to install my @adam112 setup.

I pulled the seat out last Wednesday, hoping that Speed Inc had cut the floor for me already when they had the car. Nope.

I ordered a sheet metal bit for an air chisel from Adam's advice. Then I ordered a hatch cover from Mont. Both packages showed up yesterday, so today I set out to get everything wrapped up.

It didn't happen.

I have a Chief air hammer from Harbor Poop, and it is looong. The chisel bit I got was looong too. I followed the instructions with the cover and set out. I drilled my pilot holes and could only use the dang thing on 1 cut. It DID work awesome and quick just as Adam said it would. The rest I had to use red and green tin snips. It wasn't horrible, just more time consuming.

I got the ring off pretty easy with a big brass punch and hammer, then pulled the bucket out. I came inside to watch Adam's install video again, (which is a pretty awesome idea) then came back outside to put everything together, only to find out from Adam again, that this Squash kit has a ZL1 fuel level sensor.

I needed a stock setup, so I ordered one from RockAuto. Now I wait for THAT.

In case anybody needs a cover for the fuel pump, I found out that Mont sells a fenfabrication hat for $50 more than the actual manufacturer sells it. 😔 SO, keep that in mind if you need one.
