  1. Well as the title says how do I go about doing and what do I need?

    Thanks in advance.
     
  2. What do you want to check for pushrod length I assume?
     
  3. Yes, too make sure that everything is squared away after the head swap.
     
  4. Remove your rocker arm on say the #1 cylinder. Take a sharpie permanent marker and color the valve tip. Replace your rocker arms and rotate engine over by hand 2 or 3 times. Remove rockers again and make sure you have a clean even line in the center of valve stem if not p.rods need to be altered or rockers shimmed.
     
  5. No tools or nothing. hmm thought it would be more complicated i'm going to try it tomorrow
     
  6. I didn't no I had to walk you to the bathroom, some things require a little common sense too.
     

  7. Oh gee thanks cool guy :nice:

    Would you like to hold my **** while I **** also?
     
  8. lol, i have the last laugh! :lol:

    for now... :notnice:

  9. You also want to make sure the rocker is riding on the center of the valve tip. You could use a adjustable pushrod to determine if you have the correct length.

    Is it a ped or stud mount set-up?


    Mine's too big to hold:D
     
  10. ped.

    Thanks rick
