Lash caps crossed my mind, AFTER iI already pulled the heads back off of the engine. I hadn't yet used a marker/dykem to see roller sweep across valve tip, but even if I do need longer pushrods, the clearance is nil. I can actually spin the roller tip on one valve stem with rocker installed. Rocker RAIL is resting on the retainer, roller isn't even contacting valve. I WILL use lash caps or Manley LocCaps if I can. The 787 retainers are 7*. Are super 7 locks compatible? I have no lash cap experience, so if this is truly an option someone please let me know. Thanks.
