OK, got all the new hoses on leaks!  While waiting for it to warm up I thought I'd record the sound of it. Sounds a bit like a sewing machine. Oil pressure is good at about 60 lbs at idle. Not sure what kind of oil is in it.

Should I worry about the valves/tappets? Listening to other videos of 907s on Youtube I think they sound very similar. We used to have a '75 Valiant slant-6 that sounded just like this only much louder. It ran for years that way. You could always tell when dad got home.

I'll try changing to one of the "classic car" oils and see if it makes a difference.
