post a pic of the length checker on the stud with the push rod in place! If the seats were cut high the valves would set closer to the pistons making the valve stems shorter above the head and if the valve stem tips were dressed that would make them shorter by more! If you had valve springs installed to match the cam why did he install the rotators? Check your spring hight with the rotators installed are all the springs at the same height with valves closed? Rotators decrease the spring hight call the cam techs and see if you should run rotators with that cam! I would remove them! And set spring hight! I thought you bought a spring kit?

No origional springs are installed. The origional. Tbi springs. Would work. With the cam. Says the edelbrock website but it cant be wrong becouse it is the same lenght as the. Old lifter and rods .. I measure that And the rockerarms are in the middle of the valve stem. Thats good. Right ?

Put a straight edge across the tops of all the valve stem tips all 8 on each head are they all touching the straight edge or are they staggered?Like in the pic? some touching some not! send a pic!

It should be fine, The wear print looks good, if the tool is that close on all the valve tips,The lifters rotate in their bores as you break in the cam everything will settle in and be fine,make sure you prime the engine as you turn the crank slowly till you see oil at the rockers!

If they are close it will be ok all the same hight is best, but if the gaps are wide you may have to run different push rods on individual cylinders or have your high valve stems dressed down! you might also run lash caps on a few valve stems!




I really don't think you'll have a problem running those push rods by the pictures you posted but I would like to see your pics with a straight edge first!



Lash caps
