Be careful with the long head bolts. The bolts on each end of the heads
are slightly longer than the three inner bolts. Mixing them up would be an assembly error with consequences.

Good Job!

Actually it was a big hassle I would not recommend. You have to find an old 1954 Hurst front motor mount adapter, and then adapt it. Dual exhaust on the narrow frame is trouble unless you install a...

Like I said, I went through the exercise to find a set of 16 rocker arms that were as close to the spec as possible. I guess the reason as to why the rockers were or werent close to spec wasnt...
