One question though, I have K800 springs, do I have to do something to my pauter rockers? I have heard that you have to make some clearance but is that true?

I have the same Pauter rockers and K-800's on my Autocraft heads. Check the bottom side of the rockers at the spring retainers, I had to clearanc mine just a little because they would rub a little. Use a file or sanding block and take a little off at a time and check your clearances so you wont take too much off.
