If you havn't done so already, I would put in a front crank seal and oil pump o ring, rear main seal, valve cover grommets, both half moons, new pvc valve and grommet, drive belts, and check the exhaust manifold and gaskets. That was one of their poorer designs to a great motor. The manifold gets heated up and the studs will back out. If they do, I suggest time certs and not heli coil. Eventually even helicoils will back out.

Make sure you don't overtorque the nuts holding the valve cover on.


If you want, you can unplug the coil and turn the motor over a few times to get some oil to the top end and then go for it.

Then readjust the valves once you have gotten it warm and check the timing,

you can also use a PH8A oil filter made for a chevy, it's bigger and allows your 22r to hold 5quarts exactly. more oil means it'll run cooler:smokin:
