Pre-Tuner Yup, it should all be in there.

hemi joe yes,this is a factory roller the spider plate should allready be there is that correct?

Pre-Tuner Depends on what you are doing. If you are installing OEM roller components in your block (assuming it is set up for it), then you would install a sheetmetal "spider" that presses on the guides that keep the lifters in. If you are installing a retro-roller camshaft and lifters, you just install the lifters and they have a bar that connects them together.

Pre-Tuner Then you should be good.

hemi joe i do have self-aligning roller rockers.
02-26-2010 05:25 PM
Pre-Tuner I think it all depends on the rockers you are using. If the tip of the rocker will center itself, you wouldn't need guideplates. The guideplates keep the pushrod from driving the rocker off of the valve.
