SBC 350 help
I just picked myself up a new car,

It was running fine untill i heard a click, apon prodding around I discovered that its caused by one of the rocker arms, the bolt that's in the head is working its way out, which caused one of the rocker arms to wear. Any idea how to get that bolt back down?

If its factory, its a press-in stud. You will need to pull it, drill and tap the hole for screw-in studs. You REALLY should do all of them. I strongly recommend pulling the heads to do this. If you already have screw-in studs, just install 2 regular nuts, tighten then together, and use the top one to screw the stud down.

Same as what newton said but I would check that valve out to make sure its not bent.

I agree, further reason to pull the heads. What kind of spring pressures are you running?

The time now is 12:23 PM.
