i have a stock Gt and thinking about doing cams. should the delete plates be done? And what stops the valve from falling when the spring is compressed?
Make sure you check both wedges of the valves by pushing them down as you compress the valve, I had one valve that the wedges needed to be pushed down after a couple turns of the tool. After the install I turned the motor by hand to check that all of the followers were staying put and that one valve's wedges were not moving before I buttoned up the covers.
Follow the write up and you will be fine.
Racing done, no more fun...or is it?
Just to clarify and be sure.
When installing cams such as thumprs or hot rod cams. Do you need to adjust anything on the rocker arms to be sure they arent loose or to tight. Or do the cams all just drop in and no adjustments need to be made?
Ive seen adjustable lash pins or something and just wanna make sure i know
