Southern engineering will not solve the problem. If it would I would grind my own camshafts with a wood rasp.

When using self aligning rockers, the rocker MUST be pre-loaded (in contact) with the valve tip at all times or the rocker arms will be tossed off the valve. That eliminates the use of a solid lifter camshaft that may set from .015" to .030" valve lash.
