I'm putting a 4.0 head from a '95 Cherokee onto my CJ7 with a 1973 Jeepster 258 in it.
In bolting down the rockers using 19 ft*lbs there are times in the stroke in which there is a lot of play in the rockers and push rods and they are tight (can't spin the push rods with my fingers) at other times in the stroke.
I'm using the push rods from the 258 motor.
Before the swap there was a little tick in the motor...
Is 19 ft*lbs an okay torque to use? I got the info from another thread on another board...
How much play/slop is acceptable? I think my buddy thought I had as much as .02" between the rocker and spring...little less than a match book cover...
why yes, yes i am a moron
