when installing gas valves it says ground the #1 valve, what is the purpose of this and why not all three?

The OEM setup has the factory ground wire from the stator cover to the OEM head or #1 powervalve cover. When installing gas valves, you need to retain the ground wire.
Here is a thread showing.

now, the 3-5 millimeters the cap gets grinded down, the read adjuster spring needs to be unscrewed that same amount in order for the spring to retain the same tension as before you grinded the cap. You will be setting the adjusters anyway in order to make sure you obtain the highest RPM when fully open. The red adjuster gets adjusted in increments of roughly 1-2 clicks of the detent in the black cap until you see the correct RPM.
hope I said that right......

If I remember correctly, grind #1 .060 and it should clear the pipe.

Maybe this will help clarify my statement better.....
In my picture. I moved it to the gas valve mount since I had aftermarket heads as noticed in the picture.
The OEM head has a location for the ground wire. Aftermarket heads do not.
