Ok I have the top half of the engine off, and I have taken out the pushrods. When I put them back in is there a special procedure that I have to follow in order for them to be set properly? Or can I just torque them down to specs and be all set. Basically asking for advice on how to put the pushrods back in and having everything set.

: EDIT : ok so the main questions is: can I just tighten the rockers back down or not?

: Step 1 : tight to 68 in / ln
: step 2 : tight to 168 in / lb + rotate 30*

Ajaxus, when you did yours; did you just tighten the lifters back down or did you do anything special to them??
