    For some reason, this site doesn't seem to like sbf tech. If you go there and search "adjusting stud mount rockers" You will find a VERY VERY VERY informative read on valve train adjustment and set up. I wish I'd known before I spent my first penny on speed parts....

    The site's name is getting caught in the language censoring software.

    try modifing by adding an underscore so it so it's cantget_anydumber.

    I've tried to link pictures here before that were absolutely SFW (safe for preschool!) and it wouldn't let me.

    Just a question. Where did you have you vacuum hose connected. Was it to the mainifold, giving full manifold vacuum, or to the carby port?
