it's a 1987 engine, came out of a E350 Econoline, it's installed now in my son's Granada.

I don't know about the early 289-302 rockers, this is my first time I deal with Ford engines.

the rockers are cast not stamped like the chevy units.

you mean there's a way to adjust them valves? shims or something?

the truth is I would love having a chevy-like system, adjustable by turning them loose 'til they make noise then tigthen down 1/2 turn, you know what I mean right?
