Dennis dude, I don't think I said solid
lifters, if I did I'm an idiot because they
are hydraulic lifters with this cam
.436 valve lift (intake/exhaust) @ 300 deg
SAE j604d duration
Lash is HYD
gross lift @ cam is .291 (intake, exhaust)
224 deg cam lift @ .050 duration
The bleed down prob is when I tighten the
set screw for adjustment the pushrod turns
easier progressively. I read the sheet you
maybe the car has to be running when adjusting these valves, ie:
"Pump up"; This is the action of the lifter filling with oil. If there is a blockage in the oil lines (or the hole in the side of the lifter), it will never pump up
and the internal plunger will bottom out inside the lifter body. There is some disagreement in what I consider "pumped up". In my mind, a lifter is only
pumped up while there is oil pressure in the engine and this is only while it's running!
you also said that:
I have heard guy complain that without flat topped studs your rocker adjustment will come loose and ARP makes them both flat
and with the dimple!!
do ya think new studs will solve this, or are
my lifters in bad shape. If that is so, is
my cam dust......?
