  1. It's really sad , I wish you good luck for the future. The problem came from the oil pump or coolant that was replaced by water ?
  2. Thank you , I did not know that originally the timing cover was painted. When I bought the car, there was still the original timing cover, it was not painted and was in very bad condition. So I buy a new timing case. Here are the pictures of the engine when I buy the car, everything was original and we can see that the timing cover was not painted. I have a friend who has remade his V8 455 from his Riviera GS 71 and he has not painted it either. I do not know why mine was not painted, there is no old trace of painting disappointed : / Then a year later I had repainted the engine and I had installed a new crankcase and water pump
  3. hello, original the casing did not paint, it is a new but the casing I had original was not painted in the factory. That's why I did not paint it, because of origin he did not paint . thank you RivNut , I painted the balancer , I just have to go back
