    The rocker stud is not broken. The poly-locks on all the other rocker arms are the same height on the intake and exhaust.

    UPDATE

    Well I know what I did wrong in the first place. When I was turning the push rod and tightening the rocker arm I stopped when I felt a little resistance turning the push rod then tighten the poly lock. Reading more I see that I should of went a I/2 turn more before tightening down the poly lock.
    Started up the car and went for a drive and everything seems fine now. The rocker arms sound like a old sewing machine, very loud. Thanks everyone for your help! :nice:

    yeah just because a rocker went loose doesn't mean he destroyed a bunch of other things. Glad it worked out for you.
