350 chevy rocker adjustment

I'm replacing my stock rockers with rollers and need to know how to adjust them. I'm used to the screw and locking nut type but am at a loss as to this type of procedure.

Solid or Hyd. cam? I have done it this way on my race engines for years, adjust the intake when the exhaust starts to open and do the exhaust when the intake starts to close. If you have a solid use your feeler gauge if it is a hyd. take all of the slack out of the pushrod and give it 1/4 turn then snug the jam nut down. Do not over tighten the jam nut.

Hope this helps, Mike

If you are talking about how to tighten the poly lock nuts, the recomended procedure and one I have always used is basically adjust to 0 lash with the big nut , turn the inside lock down until it hits and turn them both together for the last 1/4 turn. I have used this procedure and never had one back off.
This is for Hydraulic only solids would be similar but you would adjust to the final lash, back of 1/4 lock the internal down and tighten both together for 1/4 back to the final lash setting
