Warning Vortec Head users

If you are running Vortec heads please heed this warning. Do not mix CAT Roller Tip Rockers and +.050 valve keeps. They will hit each other. Below is a picture comparing the two, luckilly the metal in the CAT brand was soft enough it got marred and I did not drop a valve.

CAT vs. Comp Brand Roller Tip rockers
