    Default Olds pushrod guide question

    I had a loose rocker and it ended up wearing into the guide. I've looked for a replacement, but everything for an Olds
    looks different than what I got. I got a new rocker but when I go to tighten it, it still is able to slide because of the groove
    in the guide. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get a replacement guide?
    Also, how would I even get the rocker arm stud out?

    Thanks.

    That's a conversion kit to switch from bolt down to stud mount.Crane has those for ford and it looks like the guide and plastic insert are the same.

    to get the stud out put 2 nuts on the stud and tighten them together and remove stud using the lower nut that's how I have done it in the past a couple times I had to use 3 nuts

    That's it . Thank you very much.

    Doubling up nuts is how I thought. I just wanted to be sure.

    Thanks again.
