but it still works noisy I think.
or am I being paranoid:scratch:
The valve opens when tightening the bolt rocker because preload lifters was less than .020 "
Yesterday started the engine.
Is that better?:)
Tomorrow I will try to interchange pushrods.
I will inform you of the results.
the second cylinder is at TDC
I set good used rocker arms and pushrods. And now valve opens while tightening the rocker arm's bolt.

2 Ex 0,15 Int 0,05
3 Ex 0,15 Int 0,40
4 Ex 0,05 Int 0,55...
I mixed up the pushrods, everything else is set in the same position.
Yes, I know it
I they were in the oil for about half of the day...

I will tell the story in brief: I bought the Stang a year ago, the engine was now in this condition.
Mileage was 160,000 km
Please do not be afraid:)...
I plan to check and remove all the elements of the valvetrain. I will measure the length of the pushrods, check all clearances.
I'll start next...
I removed the intake manifold and all the lifters right side.
