Thanks Gach! Unfortunately I broke my freshly rebuilt engine the next weekend. I think it's fixed but the valve train sounds noisy to me. Maybe I'm just paranoid after breaking a rocker arm and snapping the roller off of the lifter next to it. There was a little damage on the cam that I polished out and a nick in one lifter bore. I guess I'll find out if it's fixed next weekend with a 2 day race.

Always sucks when you break stuff.

That's the racin' deal.
