Hey guys I am currently building a 12v. I'm not sure if I'm doing the head stud pedestal install correctly. I got all the rocker arms switched to the new milled pedestal and all the adjusters backed all the way out. Everyone one has a little bit of play except for cylinder 2. The pushrod is up and its keeping pressure on the rocker which is lifting the pedestal off the head a tiny bit. Is it okay to tighten it down like that?? Thanks for the help !
No, it doesn't matter if the engine is at TDC. If the adjustment screw is totally backed off and the rocker is still tight something is installed incorrectly. That is a solid lifter. Do not tighten the pedstal bolt.
