What does it take to put those in? You need studs and the alignment clips/plates/whatever right?

And it really runs that much better? I've heard they don't do much until high revs.

Cheers!

Well my problem was I had a few really bad rockers and the lash was all messed up. But now it's all set right. I had to get Polly locks and new pushrods but that's it. I should notice a huge difference after I retune the carb and timing. And I won't know much about high rpm range till I install torque arms.

So how do they stay aligned? For example, the old rockers have a bridge that keeps them straight. How do the rollers keep from flopping side to side?

Cheers!

Replaced the pilot bearing yesterday and wore myself out trying to get the tranny in place. Put the t case on and called it a day. Came home from work, put both drive shafts on, skid plate and took it for a short drive. Done.

Didn't do much of anything to it today but I drove it to the gas station on a mission to get some Hostess Snowballs which they apparently stopped selling there... Damn you zombieland for making me want some. Before that though I told my dad I was going and he parked behind me so he started mumbling... "damn it, it's too cold outside. I'm tired of moving my Jeep for everyone. We need to move somewhere warmer" lol. Well this was his solution for not having to move anymore for other vehicles to get in and out of the garage and driveway.

What was he suppose to do? Just send you on your way with a warning? Everything they do is on camera being recorded so they kinda gotta play by the rules

I'm guessing you have insurance and just didnt have the card in the Jeep. In that case, cant you take the ins. card in and get the ticket removed. If you don't, the fault is on you, not the Trooper.

This is on a chevy 350. It doesn't have a bridge. The amc engines do but there's something with the rockers that won't let them turn. I've tried lol I can't figure out how they stay strait but they do.
