casting # 14014416. Yes, i know how to adjust valves
with scorpions i can get them to the point where oily pushrod no longer rotates easily by fingers, but thats it, if i tighten more it will just clamp my rocker to stud boss and -> rocker will not "rock".
I cannot check for geometry errors because i cannot adjust valves properly. Would not want to buy longer pushrods just for the fun of it, so would it be ok just to make room by removing material from somewhere? that way i could at least get to rotate the engine with adjusted valvetrain and check if roller tip aligns properly to valve tip or not.
