    Default Gen VI bbc cam lifter timing chain quesiton

    so, I can give you guys the back story if you'd like. But I'll spare it.

    My question is:

    if one wanted to, can retrofit roller rockers (you know, the kind used in mark iv gen v blocks) be used on gen vi blocks? I know they say the lifter bosses are taller, does that matter?

    On this Gen VI - can I use a mark IV/gen V retrofit roller cam NOT using the gen VI nose plate and use the double roller timing chain with the torrington bearing used in a Mark IV/gen V with the thrust button and the gen V timing cover. - My research says that shouldn't be an issue.

    Thanks.

    The lifter bores are taller, buy the .300" taller "retrofit" lifters.

    Yes you can run MK IV cam, with MK IV style timing chain set, only thin you run into is timing cover clearance. IMCO gen 6 covers clear, others may as well.

    Gen 5 timing cover is different from either MK IV or Gen 6
