    Thanks mang. Got a part number by chance? Oh and why in your gauge pic is your speedometer showing 55MPH? Gauge sweep?

    Ray, what size are your marchals? I can only seem to find 5 and 7". Are they a direct fit?

    There are shims installed already and I haven't touched the cam towers. The cam spun freely once I got some of the rocker arms out as well so it appears everything is sound there. The guy who did the head on my L16 took it all apart and re-assembled without issue because at the time I wasn't comfortable doing it myself. I trust him and could give him the cam, rockers and lash pads and have him put it all back together for me. Is it a bitch to put the rockers back on after the head is done? I had a bitch of a time compressing the springs to get them out.

    Thanks buddy. Magnet worked. Cam looks good. No strange wear or anything that I can see. All lash pads look like this:

    What about the lash pads? Should I take them off? If so how? I got the rockers labeled in a box but want to make sure I put the lash pads with the right rockers. I’ll order some rocker arms.

    Head as it sits now.

    I got them out with the head on some blocks. But the #1 rocker has some gouge and wear. Should I be concerned? I pulled the cam shaft out. What else do I need to take off the head before taking it to the shop?

    Is there a trick to getting the rocker arms off? I backed off the nuts all the way down but I can’t seem to compress the valve spring enough to get the rocker off. I tired using a screwdriver to compress the spring to no avail.

    What am I looking at here? Your truck was gray in the first post wasn’t it?

    He seems like a good guy little slow but makes good product. I bought my braided clutch line from him. He sent an SAE banjo bolt when I needed metric but he just refunded me a couple bucks to go buy one.

    Pretty sure it is.
