More Problems

alright after finding out the rockers are peaces of crap. I took all the poly locks off and removed the rockers. Put the intake lifter on the the bottom of the loob and put the timming mark on zero. got ready to adjust the new comp rollers. Then to my surprise found out that one pushrods was at an angle. So thinking it just moved out of the center of the lifter put it back and pulled back. It didnt feel right so i looked down the head to see the lifter. Then what do you know. It blew up. however its not a big problem. The c clip on the top of it just broke. So thinking i could snake the lifter back up threw the hole in the head and put it back together i ran into a problem. It would not fit but only barely. i was surprised that it blew up because they are the comp ones. anyway now im waving my magic wond hoping i dont have to pull the intake. i have everything back on the lifer except the c clip. Since the lifter is pumped up i but the pushrod on it and put pressure on it and now waiting to see what its going to do tommaro. then hopfully be able to put the c clip on with two long screw drivers and a lot of luck. Has anyone done this before.

You got way more patience than I do, I'd of already pulled the intake. I just hope you don't find a wipe lobe too.

Sorta forgot to post. Anywho last friday i put the lifter back together. I didn't wipe out my cam. But putting that c clip back on the lifter was quite a challenge. I did it though. Didnt have to pull the intake or anything. So now if any of you run into the same problem you could most likely do the same. By the way the comp cams roller rockers came and they look the same but better quality.
