I came home from work and wife was in W.Va. so the place was mine :D
I fired up the Camaro and went straight to the gas station for a fill up $$.
Left the gas station (sideways.. man that thing RPM's quick) and headed over buddies house to show and about half way there I heard a tapping which got worse as I drove. It's only a few miles and she never went over 4000 rpm (even back a gas station). Pull up ,pop the hood,hear what side its from,and shut it down to cool so I can pop valve covers. Pull the valve cover and gap the rockers,ones real loose (solid roller) so I look at it closer... it was broke ! Some how the shaft broke on both sides of the polylock. WTH ? Now I'm waiting for the Mfg. to get back with me :sad:

I always tell myself it could have been worse but I still get PO'd when these things happen. I have poly locks - ARP - and they've held up fine. Keep us posted on the progress/resolution. I also have the polylocks on ARP studs. The studs that came with my heads weren't very accurate.
