Comp cams has good instructions on the web site. Why are you running a cam that big with low comp pistons? and not 1.6 or .7 rockers?

The information on how to set valves with solid lifters is in the Knowlege Base on this site. The knowlede Base has lots of good info and even has a search mode, take a look....its fantastic! :thumbup:
