got the right stuff it was motorcraft parts i needed , cars running sweet now,

heres what happened , I bought a new alloy rocker cover and fitted it to the car, the car fired up but was only running on 3 cylinders before cutting out and refusing to start .thats why i replaced the plugs points ect, anyway it turned out that the rocker cover didnt have a very big breather hole and was forcing the oil back up through the dipstick and in turn also managed to knock out my valve clearences after a quick adjustment of the gaps and a bang on the valves with a wooden mallet the car started running fine except now it only idles with a bit choke so ill try the timing next
