  1. Thank u guys indeed it was the timing chain and the 2 black dots that were not aligned properly the problem is I m in Egypt 6000 miles from USA. The engine is overhauled already and the mechanic is Egyptian who doesn’t know a word of English . So I translate and I don’t have any experience whatsoever yet your help today was very appreciated . The engine did start . Mechanic will do alignment of the 2 dots tomorrow morning after Gerri g the right measures from old parts that were in engine b4 overhaul
  2. It seems you are right! It’s the timing chain! Can u provide me with a photo of links and the 2 dots I believe mechanic lined the dot on the two sprockets up, and that is y engine is not running this way. can u provide me with a photo showing the right way! Sorry for the trouble but I m stuck for hours now with mechanic
  3. It does not. Its 1949 i mean lefters regular ones
  4. Thanks a million we did that yet engine is not responding as we failed to manage the oil to pass to the lefters by a drill! Mechanic is trying to fill the oil manually now! Hope we manage thanks
  5. just did complete engine overhaul for a 248 CI (V8) engine OF MY Buick super 1949 the problem is we are trying to start the engine yet there is no oil in (hydraulic tappers or hydraulic valve lifters- not sure about term in english languge) the mechanic is telling me that usualy there is a hole on side of engines to fill in oil for those tappers or lifters but in the case of my car there is only one hole on top of engine and it seems that whenever we try to turn the engine on there is no oil in those lifetrs or tappers yet! any clue how to fill oil in engine after a complete overhaul? technical help needed! oil after engine overhaul
  6. it is a V8 WHY ARE YOU SUGGESTING IT IS NOT? thanks
  7. actually we did complete overhaul of the engine. We were about to start engine first time last night , we tried many times but engine was not responding properly and was clear that firing order was wrong! After many trials I decided to ask u guys did those trials affect the overhaul we did? Is there any damage done due to those wrong trials ? Thanks

  9. Thanks Larry so much but we were confused cos it’s written on block as shown in pic the right order as u mentioned , yet number 1 is towards front windshield and last one is facing radiator! So we are confused which is number 1 exactly ? And number 2 would be the one after it immediately? Or the order would b as u mentioned, meaning after 1 would be 6 then 2 and ....
