My engine is making a tapping valve train sound I cant figure out and I have another vehicle and no bills for the next two months. I'm considering pulling the heads and having studs for rollers installed and the springs for a different cam.

Can I install studs on bridged rocker heads myself? I know they aren't necessary. But why not, right?

Well. Harland makes some that work out of the box but they are pretty pricey. Any other options?

I am trying to think of power adders while I have it torn down anyways.

I hear good things about Rhodes lifters.

I also know a lot of people like the Summit K6001, would I need a stall converter with my 401?

I don't want to have to rev over 5,200 RPM for my rod bearings sake.

Any high lift cams you can suggest that wont kiss the pistons and keep the power band in the range I'm talking about?
