    Heads up on valve train kit install

    I just wanted to put this out there for anyone who has or plans on purchasing a used valve train kit since I've seen a bunch of them floating around on the forum. Make sure you purchase the necessary new rocker shaft bolts. For those of you who aren't familiar with the setup, there's 6 of them and they are torqued to stretch just like the head bolts. Neither the rocker bolts nor the head bolts should be re-used.

    I know..it's possible..but not recommended. I think Riva is hinting that it's a good idea to replace them considering they include new bolts in their upgrade kit.

    PM coming your way Steve. If I remember correctly the kit you got from me was one I purchased new from another member (that I regret selling) now that I've gone off the deep end with the whole modifying thing.

    once they are stretched they dont bounce back.

    If you can get ARP brand, get those. If not, get the ones from Diggs link.
