Figure 63. Changing the springs on the passenger side head to the Comp Cams dual valve springs. One change from the original plan is using the tool steel retainers instead of the titanium retainers. Cost was the major factor in that decision.

Figure 64. All changed out with the 5/16 pushrod guide plates and rocker studs for the roller rockers. The studs are torqued to 22ft lbs.
