sorry i have taken so long to reply. i still dont know what to do as
i am in australia its a bit hard to do trial and error stuff.
what i would like to know is how these shaft rocker systems work with
the 472/500 engines. i have a set of 331 rockers and the machine shop
thinks we should be able to adapt them for my 429. we just need to
make sur ethat oil can get to the shafts. there seems to be an oil
gallery into one of the rocker post bolt holes so oil should flow up
around the bolt we just might have to machine a grove in the side of
the bolt stem.
any thoughts and info would be appreciated
