Lock nut

Do they have the allen screw lock in the center of the nut? If so are you loicking it down? Beyond that I have no idea.

Could be pulling the studs out of the heads, lifters are shot, what kind of heads and rockers are they.

loose nuts

If your rockers are adjustable types then I suggest ya get new locking nuts as they are loosening off. All heads after 69? are positive stop so no valve adjustment is needed. The adjustable ones are 5/8 while the non adjustables are I think 1/2 but maybe 9/16. Remember only 1/2 turn past no noise is what you want. Catzyalater
