Jesus,are you running a roller? I thought part of the nice thing about hydraulics lifters is you get a little bit of preload.

All the other rockers look shiny too! Its a solid roller so there is no preload. running a 8.500 pushrod now. not sure if I should go to 8.400 or 8.300.

The only way to figure out push rod length is to measure and get the length thats closest to what gives you the best wear pattern on valve tip. If you dont have a tool to do it you can make one out of a old pushrod.

Have a pushrod length tool. Measured it 4 times! came up with 8.500. But I guess shooting for the center of the valve isnt accurate?

Well hopefully you can figure out what happened, you may want to check and see if your rockers clear the retainer's at full lift, there may be a problem there. I know on my big block the crane gold rockers wouldnt clear, so I had to either grind on them or get a stainless steel rocker so I went with the comp cam rockers like these.http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CCA-1632-16/

Cranes are notorious for that, at least what I've been told in the mopar race world, but the HS is pretty much dummy proof. Now, I am no expert on a ford head design, but I know that with mopar big blocks a lot of time they need a bit grinded off them where they rest on the pedestal.


Anyway you look it, it disturbing me you would have that issue after measureing 4 seperate times and for the money HS is supose to be the best in the buisness.
Sad

Good luck with it.

Mike

Meister called me today! Told me the same thing too. Im going to set up my adjustable rocker arm tool @8.400, see if anything changes, if not, gonna clearance the rockers, order some new rocker studs and hit the streets! If the 8.400 rods make a change without changing the geometry of the valvetrain, gonna order them and some new rocker arm studs and hit the streets! Either way nothing was major and I shouldnt have to pull it all apart.
