Replac­ing 1 very failed, 4 wor­ri­some prone-to-cat­a­stroph­ic-fail­ure Auto­lite glow plugs with 5 new Bosch glow plugs.  They come in to NAPA tomor­row morn­ing.

Adjust­ed the 10 valves.  Only 4 of them required adjust­ment, the front three and then the last one if I recall cor­rect­ly.

Reamed glow plug holes.

Drilling out oil return fit­ting in valve cov­er present­ly.  Good times.

Notes:

To turn the shaft eas­i­ly, use both the nut on the oil pump and the nut on the shaft with the glow plugs out.  Smooth as can be.
