Currently I only have a short belt running the water pump off the crank. All other items have been removed. I can see the eccentric and don't have the fuel pump installed. I am gravity feeding the carb from a lawn mower gas tank. All this to try and remove any and all suspects that could be causing the squeak. Too bad I can't access the cam shaft without further engine disassembly. I've run the engine for a limited amount of time, now I am going to pull the rocker covers and recheck the push rods and then "off with it's head" tomorrow..........

hmm, wonder if it's a small compression leak from the head gasket??? is it a continuous squeak? or a pulsing squeak?
