On the rockers...I believe most merely remove and install. Since there'* no adjustment to our rockers, you shouldn't need to worry about the feelers and tracer compound. A call to Todd or Tim would clear up the questions though.

I talked to a few gearheads at work, one of which is our Service manager, and he said, unless you are changing the cam, you shouldnt have to worry, however it doesnt hurt to check...piece of mind..

Tomorrow. The top end starts to go back together.

They are correct. Just bolt it back on. Use Locktite and torque to spec.

Well install went well...springs were the most time consuming, thats abou it.
Rockers all torqued to spec with a bit of loctite on each bolt...we cranked the engine over with the starter atleast 10 times to inspect.
Pics in a bit
