I have had excellent luck with all summit products because they are usually name brand stuff with a differnt label on them and a hell of a better price.
I was just going to say- probably need to mill the rocker stud bosses down.

And there are a LOT of places that grind cams- and it really does matter a LOT. There are only a few places that cast cam cores though and that may be what you were thinking about. Also, summits parts are not the same as name brand stuff, they are the same as the rest of the white box stuff, which SOME brands also rebox and package as their own.
