Here's another great use for your vacuum gauge. If you're trying to find
TDC (Top Dead Center) compression stroke say for a leak down test, this is
an 'easy' way to do that. Also, if you are doing a leak down test you're
already set up to do the test once you find TDC. This method could save
you quite a bit of time. Just be sure to use a gauge that's capable of
reading pressure as well as vacuum or this method won't work. Here's a
link to a video on how to perform that leak down test should you need that

Replacing valve stem seals in 305 H.O. small block chevy from 1986 Monte Carlo SS
I'm putting the original 305HO back in the Monte after taking the ZZ3 out
for my Iroc project. This is mainly to make the car mobile but it may end
up tagged with this engine for a while. Previous owner reported that this
305 has over 100k miles on it and has been out of the car since 1997. He
said it smoked during startup and sure enough the valve stem seals were
worn out. Hopefully this will fix the issue.
