I invent stupid usernames
I was chatting with a summit representative about these (pn. 17001-16) comp cams roller rocker arms for my SBC 350 that a lot of you already know about. Currently have roller tip rockers with my solid flat tappet cam but I'm having to adjust the valves somewhat frequently (pushrods are still spinning so the lifters are okay). I was told I need to run guide plates with these full rollers, but the heads I have on the motor have guide slots milled into them. Would it work to forego the use of guide plates and just use the slots milled in the heads? Also I heard something about shims being used with full roller rockers? Would I need shims or would I simply adjust the lash with the poly locks like I do now with the roller tips?
