If you have the 5/16 pedastals and it sounds like you need the 7/16 studs!
New rockers I reckon!

The problem is is that the bolt ons will probably be machined for a 5/16th cap screw, whereas clevo stud mount rockers are generally set up for 7/16th studs. I spose if you dissasembled the rockers you could get the shafts machined for 7/16th and then use them as stud mounts.

You have 2 options.
1/ keep the rockers you have, and run steel std 2v heads and hydraulic cam of 530 or so lift, or
2/ Buy the propper set up and run the alloys and solid cam. There is no magic wand that will fix this problem. This is a re-run of your last thread.
Just work out which way you want to go, and do it.

Best leave the project off the road for an extra month or two and do it right. As half arse comes back to bite you always.

Yep..........back wheels off, no movement yet. Took me a while to find the joint after I had the old address.

There's some serious burnouts past their workshop around that industrial area!! Good place for a test and tune

Re: bolt on rollers 4 alloys?

i can see how this looks/sounds truth is i have all my parts its just that
1. i am owed a job by the local race engine shop
2. i would eventually like some alloy heads so before i use my ford rollers i want to know all my options so i can choose to sell new stuff or use then swap onto new alloys
3. i am off to usa soon so may as well bring home parts
4. i was offered great cam v cheap but found out it means junking other parts
i just want to know all my options before it gos back together its no loss to sell my new stuff as it costs double here what i paid in usa so i doubt il lose out.
