Re: ARP Torques

That was a good reply as I was just pricing up a helicoil tool and inserts to do the whole block. The thing that gives me the shits is how to make sure the hole is drilled and tapped square ( doesn't fit in my drill press :D ) Im not surprised they pulled as the block thread is 7/16 unc and the nuts...

Re: Valve tip height

I spose if there was wear on the rocker shafts it would add to the clearances ,specially if they wernt all worn the same. Might pay to have a good look at pushrods too ,I stripped an rv8 once that had a lot of wear on the pushrod ends ,( among other places )
