Installing pushrod guide plates
Thanks, I just wanted to be sure...Oh one other thing, how exactly do O.E.M. heads keep the pushrods centered on the rockerarm, without the use of guide plates? I understand that the older heads like my 65 289's were slotted, so you didnt need guideplates. But before these 69 heads were tapped out for studs, they just have a round hole. Wouldnt this let the pushrod move all over the place. Am I missing something?
And earlier I made a comment about cutting down for the thickness for the "nut" or whatever. I should have said the thickness of the guideplate. My brain must have shut down, making me come up with that stupid line of reasoning.
