    Rocker arm comparison

    One thing about the video is it doesn’t explain how that method won’t work on a lot of engines and you have to compromise. People see that video and copy it on a combination where it won’t work and wind up with patterns that are rolling of the valve tip or put lash caps on to increase surface...

    409 oil gallery plug

    Don't prime the engine to flush out shavings. Use a long magnet from the front plug in the block to clear out the entire passage. By running the pump you are just as likely to push metal towards the bearings as you are to flush them out of the hole.

    You can take the plug out in the front of the block and run a long magnet down that passage. Remember anything you don’t get is going straight to the bearing!
