With a new rebuild I would just put a plug in that hole. No reason for it to need oil between changes... why check it.

Maybe you're right Jeff, I'm sure this thing will all be perfect the first time.
This tube looks like, well...just a tube. It's pretty simple that's for sure. Steve say's there's a stop inside the engine so it won't go too deep...but it seems like the height outside the engine is critical. If anyone out there has a '61 144 and a ruler...I would sure appreciate a measurement of how much sticks up.

Anyone willing to share the trick for getting the old grease seal out of the timing cover without screwing up the cover? I can't seem to find anything to catch on to very well with a screw driver or a punch. See pics..

Send it over and I'll pop it out with my seal removal tool.
Pop down to an auto zone with the cover and they will have the tool. Usually you can rent the tool very cheap. It looks like a pry bar but has a hooked end on both sides. One to get inside the lip of the seal and the other one to rock it on.
I think you need that powder coated blue anyway.

Yea, I've got one of those, but it seems like there's nothing to hook it on to here. What am I missing?

I usually jam mine in where that spring is. Usually the spring rips out first then you have a nice channel to hook it to.

For what it's worth I've driven out dozens of these with just the hairy edge of a drift punch. There is just enough edge of the seal to grab a punch. You can also try a small chisel set on edge. Support the back side with a tuna can to minimize the flex of the cover. These are not Loctite'd in place and once they give they drive out pretty easily. And once they move even just a little, there is even more area to drive against.

I have a nice powder coated cover Steve did for me, so if you do irreparable damage to yours, you can have it1. But I don't think you will.

Well, it took a roll of masking tape and a sharp chisel and it went just like you said it would.

Btw Roger, thanks for the backup timing cover offer. Now you got me wondering if I should have powder coated mine. I think ill spray it, but still trying to decide if I should spray it off (without the screws) or on, and spray over the screws and gasket...or...it looks pretty good in natural too. Anyone know what color this was originally? It doesn't seem to be mentioned on the falcon "rules" page. Mine was partially painted.
