In my quest to sort out my rocker geometry, I've discovered two things. My cam has been reground and is only a .650 lift instead of .720 like the cam card says, and my valve stems are different heights. If I lay a straight edge across the exhausts on one head, I've can slide a .040" feeler gauge between the straight edge and the #3 valve while all the others are at zero.
Consequently, it would appear as if the push rod that works on
The #3 is .100 short for the other 3 ex valves on that head. Is this considered an allowable variation or should I once again beat my machinist?
Edit: Just checked the other side...There's about a .070" variation in stem height. LOL. Looks like the heads are coming back off. Dammit.
