Yep, since you think ur God with all the right answers TOO and U KNOW MORE THAN ME!?...Especially when someone has a different opinion than yours!

I'll play along with ur silly ideas and games....I buy 1 adjustable pushrod, measure the distance at all 3 points on the valve stem, then buy the appropriate rods...Yep, and I did not have to figure that out doing a google search, either...
I went directly to the source and talked to the guy at Comp Cams...Of course, since your a skeptic and resistance to new idea's is futile in ur feeble mind...Perhaps you need to call the cam guru's yourself and get re-edja'macted. ...Call 1-901-795-2400-EXT 581 and ask for Chris Ryan...

And I figure that your going to need mommy and daddy to dial the numbers for you, since from what I am hearing, they have to read this back to you, because of ur mental disability~! Yep, 1,000,000,000 ohm's of resistance! I knew a couple of Marines in the Army that I had TTTTTTOOOOOO TAAALLLKKK RRRRRREEEEAAAALLLL SSSSSLLLLLLOOOOOWWWWLLLLLY TTTTOOOOO~!

Sounds to me that whatever another person thinks about a particular situation, you just have to prove them wrong, AAAA?

Go watch Captain Kangaroo~!

Funny thing about message boards and the internet, there is always someone there saying stuff that they would never have the BALLS to say to someones face. Now just what did I do to piss you off?
Oh and by the way, I am Certified ASE Mechanic for the last 30 years. I have built more than one hot rod, race car, and motorcycle and rebuilt more than one small block Chevy, so my experience speaks for itself.
Come to this forum with questions and you will get answers, maybe you wont like what you hear, maybe you wont agree, but thats what this is about. If you have personal issues, about my "mommy and Daddy" or whether I was a Marine or not take it some where else. I think its probabaly time the moderators stepped in

I thought it might have been for 1.5 and the other for 1.6 rockers, not what you just claimed...that was someone else speculating...

Anyways, I already made up my mind to go retro roller anyways and I will have a ton of advantages to going this method....
And the number one reason for going this route is I DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WIPING A LOBE, then trying to deal with a manufacturer....NUFF SAID~!

Good for you. You've over-analyzed everything to death as has been pointed out. Despite also having it pointed out to you that flat tappet cams can live with no problem with today's oils. Despite the fact that you can buy cams that are nitrided so the ZDDP factor doesn't even enter the equation. Despite the fact that the cam companies keep on developing and manufacturing flat tappet cams. You have made the decision to go with a roller cam. Yippee! Now stop rambling on about it. You're just another freaking noob who thinks he has all the answers yet your posts show you don't have a clue about anything. Thinking that Joe Gibbs' race engine dyno results applied to cam wear and oil use for street driven cars. Then to find out all this hoopla is over a freaking RV. Whatever, FNG, whatever.
