rocker arm to retainer clearance
Hi everyone Happy Turkey Day. I just installed a Lunati Voodoo 268 cam in gm crate 350/330ho motor I had the speed shop owner who I have been doing business with for 20 years help me. We dialed it in and checked installed height. I am using the crane 10309-01 valve springs. We checked the rocker arm to retainer clearance on the curved edge of the rocker and it was fine. When the valves are closed there is plenty of clearance on the guided part of the rocker .015 to the retainer. However when they are full opn the guided edges touch the retainer enough that I can't get a feeler gauge in there, which makes mer nervous. My friend says it looks ok, and to start it up and break in the cam. Then check for wear ;marks on the retainer. That makes sense but I'd like some additional input from other people aby thoughts?
