I had carpel tunnel surgery almost 2 weeks ago; I am outta commission.

Anyways, there is an excellent shop near me; I have never used them. Heck, Other than tires and alignment, I never visit shops.
Dave ran the valves and could not believe how clean the head internals were after pulling the valve cover.
"I thought mabe 91K so I checked the odometer. Unbelievable."

Since new, the car has had 5K to maybe 7K services with mostly M1 5w30.
I used M1 5w20 for a couple years and accidently 0w20 Idemitsu once. Maybe a Valvoline or Quaker State in there?
I probably switched to High Mileage after 130K, who knows?
Generally Wix or M1 filters. There is a Fram XG7317 on there now.

Just do it.
By the way, this car is perfect.


Do you feel any difference after the valve adjustment?

Without pics, how can we accept your version of the events that unfolded as factual and not fiction?
???

I have met Jeff, I can vouch for him. He would not lie to us.


I can vouch for Critic, so therefore I can vouch for Jeff via proxy.


Dang it! I was gonna ask who vouches for Critic! Darned you Cardinal! Darned your heathen soul!

*shakes fists into the air!* LOL LOL LOL LOL

Just goes to show, if you care for your vehicles properly, they care for you in return. I bought a brand new '95 GMC Sierra, it was a work truck, put 130k on the clock in 7 years, OCI's religiously at 3500 miles and always in to the mechanic before any major problems occurred. The revers/2nd gear band broke in the tranny at 125K, other than that no major problems. I sold her shortly thereafter, but knew she was good for another 120K trouble free miles.

People like to give me heavy doses of poop about how I care about my vehicles. All I can say is that I like nice things and a drama free life, so I do all I can to keep my stuff in top notch order, looking great in the process, and keeping top dollar value when it comes time to pass my well cared for item on to someone else.

Telling this group to "change their oil" is like telling an opioid addict to grab a needle.

I can't answer this question because the #1 coil was bad causing a misfire.
But my guess is, the valve adjustment smoothed out a little across the band.
This car is amazing.

A true piece of Americana.
'68 L36 4 speed 3:36 posi. I call it my Plain Jane Corvette because the only option is the AM-FM Stereo radio, kinda new in 1968.

Right now the car is in Gig Harbor, WA; my BIL is a detail oriented guy. He is redoing the interior cuz I did a lousy job years ago.
I also have a new black rag top that needs to be installed. I could never do this; Mark will do a perfect job.
Mark also bought a nasty built 454 to install for some fun. He will pull and detail the original 427.
I just might go up there and stab a mild hyd roller while it's out.

By the way, your '69 350 is a nicely balanced car. I almost bought one many years ago.
I would love to have one now.... But they are outta reach.

Pardon me while I engage in one of my teenage automotive fantasies: '69 Corvette with an all-aluminum 427 ZL1. <sigh>
The aluminum big-block was said to be the same weight as an iron small-block, so the car wouldn't end up being nose-heavy.
Tune it up to 600 HP, and you've got a beast.

They only sold 2 ZL-1 cars. Pretty exclusive territory.
