Are you sure it has adequate lifter pre-load? Many things contribute to the modification of your factory valve-train geometry. May need longer pushrods...

Thanks, I appreciate it! When I was doing my research on my 400 build, information was very limited. Gary, Buzz, and Tim were all huge assets. I wouldn't be where I am now without them. I tried to...

It's very possible.

We did a lot of different things to try and get the arm off. Ultimately it took a lot of heat, penatrating oil, air hammers and chisels. We heated up the cones then doused them with penatrating fluid...
