I can contact the builder to make sure, but I am pretty sure he matched the cam and lifters up properly.
In one of your previous posts you said you have solid lifters but then spec'd your cam as being hydraulic. That was my concern. We are talking lifters now, not rocker arms. If you have a flat tappet cam, you either have hydraulic or solid lifters. You need to know which one of these you have before you can adjust them because they are adjusted differently. You can look at the top of the lifters and if you see two small wires running across the top (one wire on each side of the pushrod), it's a pretty sure bet you have solid lifters. If there is a snap ring instead of the wires, it's a pretty sure bet you have hydraulic lifters.
