Figure 115 and 116. All of the roller rockers have finally arrived and have been installed. They were cleaned with denatured alcohol and then dunked in engine oil. The pushrods were treated the same, and each one was given a drop of assembly lube on each end. The rockers were installed and after the pushrods stopped spinning freely, preload on the lifters was set to between .030 and .035 by turning the poly lock nut 3/4 of a turn tighter from the point where the pushrod stopped spinning freely. This completes the major internal engine assembly.
