Re: [T3] keith, don't look... (solid rocker shafts)

OK -
You guys have me lost here , are you saying that the spacer on the shaft
between the 2 intake valves is loose? Or Floats ?

What brand of Shaft is this ? This doesn't sound good at all

I have a set of Autocraft solid rocker shafts and the entire thing is cast
as one part, the divider is solid and doesn't move. You would add a few
needed spacers to it then the rocker and so one. I can see if this section
did move as a problem but if it is solid then it poses no problems.

I haven't had any issues with the valve train at all. 
Sorry i just am trying to clear this up..


"This is indeed a problem with the solid rockers. Nobody seems to be aware
or concerned about it but when I called berg they said that it "Just needed
to be reshimmed" I really dont know how much of a problem this is but Im
here again expecting 100K trouble free miles and.... Im losing my warm and
fuzzy!" Keith
