    351c head install

    All right, I'm ready to install my rebuilt heads. I'm new to clevelands. How do I adjust the valves? From what I've read you crank the rockers all the way down (factory not roller). Since my heads were cut, how do you make up for that?

    You don't make up for it. The hydraulic lifters will adjust to the slight changes in geometry from the valve and seat grinding and the milling of the heads.
