My second baby was born, so this build is again slowed down a bit, at least for a few months.
I took some steps forward, preparing the rockers for Porsche swivel feet adjusters. I grinded .060 and chamfered the exit holes. Then, I removed the double springs from a cylinder head and put some very soft springs to work on the valve train geometry. I put some 1.5mm washers under the rocker shaft, and used the "bubble level" method to adjust. Pretty close to stock pushrods, 271mm. I have chromoly pushrods to be cut to length.
Exhaust at 0 lift, half lift, full lift. Got me to 273mm long pushrod.
Here is how I got it at half lift, and another shot from a different angle (hard to see in picture, with bare eye seems to be as it should, axis of adjuster inline/parallel to the axis of valve)
Same measurements for intake, I got 272.2mm long pushrod.
And the level.
I will re-do the measurements in a few days, to double-check I got everything right. Measure twice, cut once. I will make different intake and exhaust pushrods, even if the difference is just 0.8mm.
Next, check the fitting of the fuel pump and order some more parts: clutch, fittings, exhaust, fuel pump, trigger wheel and Mini Cam Sync just to name the bigger ones... Also suspension and steering will be updated, so money have to go there too.
