I'll have to find the cam spec sheet. It's probably in that file where I
can't locate the 'lifetime' warranties. If an intake valve is slightly
open, then I'm not going to get accurate/identical preload on all
lifters. Right?

You deleted my response of not being able to find the spec sheet. I'll
go to their website and get back to you.

Thanks,

i have been adjusting hyd. lifters for years at our shop on all kinds of
vehicles that i dont have specs. for in the following manner. with a
remote starter switch i bump each valve through it's lift with my
finger on the rocker arm. as the valve closes you can feel that the cam
is on the base circle. that is when i preload the lifter. i work in a
busy shop and work on a lot of different vehicles and i haven't had any
comebacks for noisey lifters. it is a lot more easy with the intake
off, as you can watch the lifters drop in their bore. bronco
buster.

Try rotating the crankshaft one complete revolution. I think that you
are on TDC between exhaust stroke and intake stroke,(exhaust valve just
closed and intake starting to open), by turning the crank one revolution
you will be on TDC between compression stroke and power stroke. Both
valves will be fully closed. That is where you want to be. Good Luck.

Subject: FTE Perf - glasspack muffler vendors?

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knew of an online vendor that sold
glasspack mufflers with dual outlets (to have two pipes exiting instead of
one..). I've checked Summit Racing but to no avail. Any ideas appreciated...
